D-dimer Testing: An Essential Element in Pulmonary Embolism (PE) and Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) Diagnosis

Comprehensive review of Venous thromboembolism (VTE), a condition in which a blood clot forms in a vein, with a focus on Pulmonary Embolism (PE), and secondarily Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT). As common and lethal as PE is, it is imperative to diagnose and treat the patient as quickly as possible to achieve the best possible outcome. D-dimer, one of the fibrin degradation products, is a fast laboratory test that can exclude PE as a diagnosis when used in conjunction with the Wells pre-test probability assessment and scoring. In addition to the D-dimer laboratory test, the various radiological procedures are reviewed, that may be performed to rule-in or rule-out PE.
