Use of V/Q in the Modern Era

This recording of a live session provides insights on Ventilation/ Perfusion (V/Q) scintigraphy in pulmonary embolism diagnosis, including how it can:

  • Provide comparable accuracy to Computed Tomography Pulmonary Angiography (CTPA)
  • Reduce radiation overexposure, particularly for women
  • Be used in a simple diagnostic algorithm to reduce overall radiation burden
  • Be interpreted using a scheme comparable to CTPA
