Case B: This case relates to a 50 year old female with a history of hyperlipidaemia and alcoholism. The patient underwent bilateral hip arthroplasty for the treatment of osteonecrosis of the hip. The patient has been immobile during a prolonged period leading up to their surgery and has been inactive post-surgery. Whilst recovering in the days post-surgery, the patient develops abrupt chest pain, dyspnoea, tachycardia and a cough. This has raised concerns of a pulmonary embolism. Introduction, main body of the assignment & Conclusion You will be responsible for deciding how to write the assignment and the evidence you use. It should discuss the pathophysiology, the role of imaging and consider the relevance of the patient’s history and presentation using evidence to support your work. Suggestion: A dedicated section on the pathophysiology, and relevance of patient presentation, any risks and links followed by another section focusing on the role of imaging would be well suited for this assignment. The role of imaging should include the role of relevant imaging modalities along with the patient’s pathway/how it fits into the patient’s management
