Computed tomography (CT)
Helical/spiral CT – a computed tomography technology involving movement in a helical pattern for the purpose of increasing resolution. Most modern hospitals use spiral CT scanners.
CT pulmonary angiography – highly sensitive and specific diagnostic test, involving injection of intravenous contrast medium to visualize the pulmonary arteries.
CT venography – contrast-enhanced axial CT images, also known as ‘indirect CT venography’, are acquired in conjunction with CT pulmonary angiography and not as a standalone examination.
