Hello. Pulmonary embolism appears when a clot is in lung artery and stops blood from circulating. There are several additional methods that are good for diagnosing this disease. CT scan is just one of them. We usually talk about spiral (helical) computerized tomography scan. Organ is seen in 2-dimensional slices. Spiral CT is becoming a method of first-line tests for diagnosing pulmonary embolism. It is important that this is discovered. I hope your brother will feel better. Good luck to him! Bye!
