Radiation Therapy Can Cause Pulmonary Artery Thrombosis
A new article published in the American Journal of Roentgenology has found that the imaging findings of in situ pulmonary artery thrombosis (PAT) associated with radiation therapy are different from the imaging findings of acute pulmonary emboli and do not appear to embolize, according to a press release.
Based on the differences in clinical prognosis and management strategies, the study authors said in situ PAT associated with radiation therapy must be distinguished from pulmonary embolism. According to the study, in situ PAT associated with radiation therapy has not previously been described in English literature.
