Summary: For patients with suspected pulmonary embolism (PE), “clinical gestalt” may be more accurate than at predicting which patients are at low risk of PE than either the Wells or Geneva scores, and may be more accurate at predicting which patients are at high risk of PE than the Wells score; and for both situations clinical gestalt may be arrived at more quickly than a calculated risk score.
