Overuse of Imaging

General Literature

CT PE

The diagnosis of pulmonary embolism poses a challenge to achieving thecorrect balance between missed diagnoses and excess imaging and treatment.

The use of a rule such as the Wells Rule, may help and we will consider its structure as a decision-supporting tool when computerizing the order form for CT-PE.

Completing this form will help improve the interpretation of the CT, the understanding of patterns of use and the construction of an appropriate decision-support tool.
