CanadiEM - By Kerstin de Wit - February 13, 2018
"Main Messages
  1. Physicians cannot correctly diagnose or exclude DVT without having measured pretest probability of DVT.
  2. Pretest probability of DVT is accurately and reliably measured using the Wells score for DVT.
  3. D-dimer and ultrasound results should always be reviewed in the context of the patient’s Wells score.
  4. Always record the Wells score and D-dimer in the patient chart for better between-physician communication and for medicolegal reasons.
  5. Know which type of ultrasound is performed by your lab (proximal or complete), and know how to interpret the results."
