ABSTRACT
The article examines on the preciseness of computed tomography (CT) findings in acute pericarditis. It states the use of chest CT in the evaluation of patients with pulmonary embolism (PE). It highlights the accuracy of pericardial thickening/enhancement as the single parameter for pericarditis. It also emphasizes the role of radiologists in attending to pericardial thickening or enhancement on CT chest pain studies.
