The use of contrast enhanced pulmonary magnetic resonance angiography (CE-MRA) is being used as a primary modality for the diagnosis of pulmonary embolism (PE) at our institution. We have found both direct and indirect findings of PE on CE-MRA images. It is of critical importance to have a thorough understanding of the pitfalls in the diagnosis of PE using this modality. This pictorial essay will help to educate imaging physicians about these pitfalls and the associated indirect findings that can point to the presence of this important disease.
