SPECT ventilation and perfusion scans of the lungs were performed. A large mismatched perfusion defect is seen in the anterior segment of right upper lobe. Small mismatched defects are also seen in the superior segment of the left lower lobe and lateral segment of the right middle lobe. No other mismatched defects noted.
Conclusion: The scan findings are highly suggestive of multiple pulmonary emboli.
