Pulmonary arteriography: The importance of multiple projections

Academic Article


  • Pulmonary arteriography is a highly specific procedure for the diagnosis of vascular abnormalities within the lungs. However, no single projection can always be diagnostic for abnormalities in any of the pulmonary arteries. We emphasize the anatomic basis for the initial projection on pulmonary arteriography, as well as the necessity for further studies in different projections if the first study demonstrates no abnormality. © 1982 Springer-Verlag.
