The impact of lung perfusion scintigraphy in the emergency management of patients with suspected pulmonary embolism.

CONCLUSION: LPS has a key role in the early diagnosis but even more in the exclusion of PE, optimizing the management of pts who do not require admission to intensive care unit with high costs and limited availability. LPS confirms to be a simple, quick and inexpensive examination. It does not require preparation and has no side effect so it can be performed in all types of pts including pregnant women, politraumatized and complicated patients, with great impact on resource optimization for intensive care units. Our multi-year and large-scale experience related to a metropolitan area suggests that, to date, given the great demand and relevance of this examination, Nuclear Medicine Units must necessarily be organized in order to provide LPS as emergency in on-call 24 hrs service.

In a new analysis of 20 studies including more than 1200 pregnant and non-pregnant women, researchers from Australia found that the memory, general cognitive functioning and executive functioning were reduced in the pregnant women.
