Özet

Introduction: Right ventricular dysfunction is an independent and significant predictor of a poor prognosis in patients with an acute pulmonary embolism. Right ventricular overload can be detected along with pulmonary embolism via computed tomography angiography. We aimed to evaluate the accuracy of CT angiography parameters in diagnosing right ventricular dysfunction and predicting mortality in acute pulmonary embolism.
