Optimized Use of V/Q in the Modern Era: Everything Radiologists Wanted to Know but Were Afraid to Ask.

In this VOICE accredited symposium, leading nuclear medicine experts provide insights on 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
