CTPA Incidentals Spoon Feed:

Computed tomography pulmonary angiography (CTPA) yields an alternative diagnosis to pulmonary embolism (PE) in ~40% of patients with a negative PE study. Alternative diagnoses are more likely to occur in patients with increased age and in patients referred from the hospital setting (ICU or inpatient unit).

Headache Nerve Blocks Spoon Feed:

Peripheral nerve blocks may help achieve symptomatic improvement in our primary headache patients, but we are still far off with research supporting it as a first-line intervention.
