BACKGROUND AND AIM: The use of computed tomographic pulmonary angiogram (CTPA) without determining pretest probability leads to overuse and morbidities as contrast-induced acute kidney injury (CI-AKI). We aimed to assess the predictive role of Wells' rule and revised Geneva scores together with the D-dimer test in patients who underwent CTPA for the suspicion of pulmonary embolism (PE) and to investigate the frequency of CI-AKI.
