The purpose of this monograph is "to call attention to the significance of localized changes in the pulmonary arteries occurring in massive pulmonary embolism, and to examine the underlying anatomical changes in the vessels responsible for the radiographic findings." The emphasis in the present text is on the posteroanterior chest film and its diagnostic features. Changes in the peripheral pulmonary arteries in acute massive embolism, in remote or chronic massive pulmonary embolism, and remote massive pulmonary embolism are described in considerable detail. The central or hilar pulmonary artery changes in acute and subacute pulmonary artery embolization are also described.
