    00:01 gives you a similar picture. Very, very excellent picture, both non-invasive.

    00:01 So in summary pulmonary embolism can usually be diagnosed with one of several non-invasive tests. For example, the CT angiogram of the lungs.

    00:09 The CT angiogram of the lungs involves intravenous injection of a dye that appears white to the x-ray machine and defects in an artery that is filled with dye are the result of a blood clot in the lung. And, as we’ve talked about, in 90% of the time this originates in the veins of the leg.

    00:33 So it’s an illness to be taken very seriously.
