Objective To evaluate the significance of mutiple spiral CT angiography(MSCTA)in diagnosis of pulmonary embolism(PE).Methods 10 patients who were clinically suspected as pulmonary embolism were exa mined by 16-detector multislice spiral CT,pulmonary artery angiography,MPR,MIP and VR.Results Among 10 pa- tients,8 cases were diagnosed as PE by MSCTA.Among the 8 cases,34 vessels were involved with embolism.Direct signs of PE included filling defect,embolism attached to the wall of host artery,and total occlusion of the pumlonary arteries.Indirect signs included mosaic sign,subpleutral infarction,pulmonary hypertension,pleural effusion and peri- cardium effusion.Conclusion MSCTA is a non-invasive and effective diagnostic method,which may replace the pul- monary angiography and become the first choice in the diagnosis of PE.
