From: Should we look for silent pulmonary embolism in patients with deep venous thrombosis?

  All S-PE (%) No S-PE (%)
DD <250 ng/ml 11 4 (6.3) 7 (23.3)
DD 251-578 ng/ml 14 9 (14.1) 5 (16.7)
DD >578 ng/ml 69 51(79.7) 18 (60)
  1. DD (D-dimer), S-PE (silent pumonary embolism).
  2. Chi-square p value 0.04.
