Abstract

Rapid diagnosis of VTE is vital in reducing the significant morbidity and mortality rates associated with this disease. Although angiographic studies remain the 'gold standard' for diagnosis, many noninvasive diagnostic procedures are available and are appropriate for evaluation in clinically stable patients. The algorithm presented in this article facilitates the practical and efficient use of available resources in diagnosing and treating VTE.
