Behçet's disease is an inflammatory disease that may involve the chest, manifesting itself by the presence of pulmonary artery aneurysms. The authors report a case of Behçet's disease where findings at chest radiography and computed tomography have suggested the possibility of the diagnosis.

    The article discusses whether computed tomographic pulmonary angiography (CTPA) is at least as safe as ventilation-perfusion (V/Q) lung scanning for ruling out pulmonary embolism (PE) in adults with acute symptoms. Randomized, controlled, noninferiority trial was conducted. It is concluded that...
