Hi! Im a weekend xray tech and not certified in CT. Yesterday the ER dr. ordered a PE protocol along with an abd/pel with contrast. Is it possible to do this and get good results? If so how would you set it up? Thanks
it is easy to do because a PE usually requires data acquisition at 17-20 seconds post injection and abdominal CT for routine studies is often done at 50-70 seconds. Therefore scan the chest for PE and then wait and scan the abdomen
This should be perfect.
