Pulmonary embolism is the leading cause of in-hospital deaths. Pulmonary embolism occurs, when a clot in a deep vein is dislodged and migrates into the pulmonary artery. CT pulmonary angiography is the gold standard for establishing the diagnosis of pulmonary embolism. Blood clots in the pulmonary artery, completely or partially block the blood flow to one or both lungs, leading to chest pain, breathlessness and, and a fall in blood pressure in severe cases. Pulmonary embolism requires urgent thrombolytic or mechanical thrombolytic therapy to save the life.
