In addition to the survey, the department also retrospectively analyzed examinations and the conditions in which they were performed. Lastly, conventional imaging modalities are more complicated when used for pregnant patients.

This reduced quality of CTPA in pregnant women is caused almost entirely by pregnancy related physiological changes that can last for several weeks postpartum. The most frequent abnormalities were dilatation of the heart chambers and coronary calcifications.

As evidenced in the literature, CTPA in pregnant women tends to produce images of lower quality with weaker contrast enhancement compared with scans of non-pregnant patients. CTPA for the diagnosis of acute pulmonary embolism during pregnancy. Quality of CT pulmonary angiography for suspected pulmonary embolus in pregnancy. Not only is CTPA usually readily available, it also enables comprehensive angiosanner of the thorax and visualization angikscanner the thrombus to support differential diagnoses Fig.

Ann Fr Anesth Reanim. Voltage affects image quality, particularly when contrast is involved. Access to the PDF text. Pulmonary Embolism Diagnosis in Pregnancy: Contact Help Who are we? This has potential to help reduce mortality rates and achieve better outcomes. Does pregnancy affect vascular enhancement in patients undergoing CT pulmonary angiography?


Case Report – Page 2 – MJEM ONLINE

Pulmonary CT angiography protocol adapted to the hemodynamic effects of pregnancy. Moreover, lowering kV from to also considerably reduces radiation, given that the dose delivered to the patient is proportional to the square of the voltage at an identical mAs. This is why timing is considered so important: Computed tomography angiography, Pulmonary embolism, Heart abnormalities.

You can move this window by clicking on the headline. Previous Article CV2i Editorial board. In the following, we will take a closer look at these four parameters. Embolie Pulmonaire et Grossesse. In the case of pregnancy, the aangioscanner speed of blood flow requires an earlier acquisition that starts when the superior vena cava is opacified vs the opacification of the pulmonary trunk in the general ajgioscanner.

Prohibition of deep inspiration to prevent the Valsalva Maneuver, low voltage scan, appropriate injection volume and rate, and early acquisition.

Pulmonary Embolism Diagnosis in Pregnancy: How Bicêtre Hospital Overcomes Imaging Challenges

It almost completely dilutes the contrast agent coming from the superior vena cava SVC. Results showed that very few institutions angioscanne a specific protocol and levels of satisfaction varied widely. Angioscanner, Embolie pulmonaire, Anomalies cardiaques. With a mortality rate at approximately 25 percent, pulmonary embolism PE is one of the leading causes of maternal death during pregnancy and postpartum. Short acquisition times make it possible to target an event such as an arterial phase.

Overcoming CT imaging limitations. This is known as the Valsalva Maneuver. Hantous-Zannad abI. Prise en charge des principales urgences thoraciques et abdominales durant la grossesse. Baccouche abJ.

Look at the heart! When PE is suspected, a computed tomography CT scan may be recommended in some countries as a quick response. The researchers identified four fundamental factors that could improve contrast enhancement of the pulmonary arteries during CT angiography in pregnant women: If you want to subscribe to this journal, see our rates You can purchase this item in Pay Per View: The disadvantage is that if the acquisition window misses the point of maximum enhancement, the arteries will not be fully opacified and it becomes difficult to rule out pulmonary embolism.

Image quality and radiation exposure at pulmonary CT angiography with or kVp protocol: Objective evidence would be when a region of interest ROI placed at the pulmonary artery indicates a density higher than HU. During CTPA, radiologists and radiographers subjectively evaluate injection quality to check for sufficient contrast enhancement of the pulmonary arteries.
