COMMENTS

This 72 year old male had left leg pain with findings of phlebitis. Chest radiograph showed some mild subsegmental atelectasis at the right base but was otherwise clear. The nuclear ventilation-perfusion (V/Q) scan showed multiple bilateral subsegmental defects involving both upper and lower lobes giving the study a high probability for embolus.
