EANM’09 – CME Session V

Lung Embolism
October 12, 2009, 08:00 – 09:30
Pulmonary Embolism

Moderator: M. Bajc (Lund)
Co-Moderator: C. Schuemichen (Rostock)

M. Miniati (Florence):
Pulmonary Embolism: a Diagnostic Challenge
B. Jonson (Lund):
How to Perform Ventilation/Perfusion SPECT
M. Bajc (Lund):
The Quantitative Ventilation / Perfusion Tomography of PE Diagnosis and Diagnosic Outcomes
B. Neilly (Glasgow):
Implementation of Guidelines for Ventilation / Perfusion Scintigraphy in Pulmonary Embolism

Educational objectives:

  1. To identify importance of clinical probability before imaging tests.
  2. To comprehend the importance of optimal V/P SPECT procedure.
  3. To understand the value of new holistic V/P SPECT interpretation and principles for diagnosis of pulmonary embolism and other diseases.
  4. How to implement European Guidelines for diagnosis of pulmonary embolism.


This continued education session is directed towards nuclear physicians working with diagnosis of cardiopulmonary diseases, particularly pulmonary embolism, but also to physicians in lung medicine, emergency medicine, cardiology, radiology and nuclear medicine technologists. It will cover important principles from referral of patients for imaging test to performance and interpretation of V/P SPECT according to new European Guidelines for pulmonary embolism diagnosis.

Key Words:

Ventilation/Perfusion SPECT, Pulmonary Embolism, Clinical Probability, Guidelines, Radiation Exposure
