9 February 2018 (Friday) - D-dimer

Here’s an interesting article. What’s your D-dimer range? What’s the cut-off for a suspected embolism?

In general, they recommend patients with a low or intermediate pretest probability of pulmonary embolism undergo D-dimer testing. Those who have a high pretest probability should proceed to imaging.

Personally I can’t help but think that this is more evidence to support my stance of just doing a D-dimer when requested to do so.
