Air Embolism Radiologists
Blood vessels are made to carry blood - liquid. A small amount of air in a vessel is not usually a big deal as it will be absorbed into the blood. Larger volumes of air (10 mL or larger) can be significant to block blood flow in that vessel. That is bad in the brain (stroke) and really bad in the heart because ...Read more

Lung V-Q scan: Ventilation scanning involves the patient breathing in a radiotracer while perfusion scanning involves injecting the radiotracer through an iv. The procedure is done usually to evaluate the presence of absence of a pulmonary embolism (usually a blood clot) and involves comparing the radiotracer's presence in the alveoli vs. Its presence in the lung circulation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
