Pulmonary Embolism Imaging Referral
The Cambio CDS Pulmonary Embolism Imaging Referral Application is a software application designed to support the clinician at the point of care in determining whether a patient with suspected pulmonary embolism (PE) meets the criteria for computed tomographic pulmonary angiography (CTPA) imaging. The CDS Application is triggered when a request for CTPA imaging is initiated in the EHR for a patient with suspected PE. The CDS Application uses data from the EHR and data manually inputted by the user to determine whether CTPA imaging is recommended for the patient. Reference information is based on the results of several clinical studies and practice guidelines.
