Abstract

The aim of this study was to determine the pulmonary artery computed tomography obstruction index ratio (PACTOIR) in patients who have been diagnosed with acute pulmonary embolism (APE) with multi-slice computed tomography (MSCT) and to research the predetermination efficiency of right ventricular dysfunction (RVD) compared with echocardiography (ECHO).
