Abstract: CT scan considered as one of the sensitive tools in investigation of pulmonary embolism PE, in this study a characterization of CT- PE of Sudanese population was evaluated and compared with the other communities. CT pulmonary angiography using MDCT was performed to the all patients which were already divided by the emergency department as low, medium, or high risk of pulmonary embolism. The subjects included in this study were 78 patients 33 (42.3 %) males and 45 (57.7 %) females, the frequency distribution of study-patients age showed that the higher probability of PE age group is patient over 71 years old, also the study found that the PE probability increased as age function increased with the followings data in the age group from 21-30 there was 3.6 % of research subjects having pulmonary embolism, for the age group of 31-40 there was 7.7 % registered pulmonary embolism, while for the age group of 41-50 the collected patients with PE covered 11 % of the total subjects, 51-60 years age group almost contain 19.2 % and for 61-70 age group there was 11.5 % of the research patients with pulmonary embolism, while over-70 there was a 30.8 % with pulmonary embolism and that was disagree with the document of Garca-Sanz etal.2014, The result of this study showed that, there were 48 patients (61.5 %) of all research-subjects with family history and 30 patients (38.5 %) without family history. , the result of this study showed that there were 36 (46.2 %) in the right pulmonary artery, 17 (21.8 %) left pulmonary artery and 25 (32.1 %) bilateral in the right and left pulmonary artery, patients in the sub segmental PE group included 10 (45 %) with single PE and 12 (55 %) with multiple PE. for location of pulmonary embolism, there were 9 patients (11.5 %) with pulmonary embolism located at the center of the pulmonary artery and 69 (88.5 %) was peripherally and this was disagree with the study of Garca-Sanz et. al.2014.
