Dr Deepa Gopalan, Consultant Cardiac Radiologist, Imperial College London & Cambridge University Hospital

Chronic thromboembolic disease is potentially the only curable form of pulmonary hypertension.  Inspite of definitive therapeutic options, the disease is either misdiagnosed or there is a dely in the diagnosis.  Acute and chronic pulmonary emboli have distinct histopathological and imaging appearances.  Radiologists play a pivotal role in recognising the disease as early and accurate diagnosis is essential to achieving the best outcomes.
