Imaging continues to be the modality of choice for the diagnosis of venous thromboembolic disease, particularly when incorporated into diagnostic algorithms. Improvement in imaging techniques as well as new imaging modalities and processing methods have improved diagnostic accuracy and additionally are being leveraged in prognostication and decision making for choice of intervention. In this article, we review the role of imaging in diagnosis and prognostication of venous thromboembolism. We also discuss emerging imaging approaches that may in the near future find clinical usefulness in improving diagnosis and prognostication as well as differentiating disease phenotypes.
