Description:

Montani et al identified findings on a high resolution CT scan which may indicate that a patient with pulmonary arterial hypetension (PAH) has pulmonary veno-occlusive disease (PVOD).

The authors are from Universite Paris-Sud, Universite Pierre et Marie Curie, and multiple hospitals in Paris.
