Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The diagnosis of PE in pregnancy poses a challenge due to pregnancy-related physiological changes. Missing the PE or wrongly treating a pregnant woman for PE has serious clinical consequences. There has been concern over the use of radiation-based imaging modalities due to risk of teratogenicity and oncogenicity. This review is focused on various diagnostic options and risks of radiation to the fetus and mother from radiation-based procedures.
