Diagnosis: Pulmonary embolus in right pulmonary artery
Pulmonary embolus in right pulmonary artery
This pulmonary embolus has a more chronic appearance, since it is wall adherent. Acute emboli are more centrally located within the vessel lumen. This patient has also a right atrial thrombus (arrow, second image). Atrial thrombi may not cause symptoms by itself (sometimes arrhythmia) but pose the risk of dislodging and causing pulmonary embolism.
