Thursday 4 May 2021, 17:30-18:30 (GMT)
Led by Dr Richard Graham, Royal United Hospitals Bath NHS Foundation Trust
 
Ventilation perfusion imaging is a nuclear medicine technique that has comparable diagnostic performance to CTPA. There are certain situations where V/Q imaging offers advantages over CTPA and therefore it is important for all radiologists to understand the role of V/Q imaging in the diagnosis of pulmonary embolic disease.
 
Learning objectives
  • 1. Understand the principles of V/Q imaging
  • 2. Describe the indications for V/Q imaging
  • 3. Describe the situations where V/Q imaging has advantages over CTPA
  • 4. Understand the reporting criteria for V/Q SPECT
