Multidetector Computed Tomography for Acute Pulmonary Embolism: Diagnosis and Risk Stratification in a Single Test

Study Questions:

What is the diagnostic accuracy of multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) for identifying right ventricular dysfunction (RVD) in patients with acute pulmonary embolism (PE), and what are the prognostic implications of (RVD), as detected by MDCT, in the same patient population?
