Figure 6: Another case of Type 4b findings with discrepancy in ventilation/perfusion scan showing right lung uptake to be 6% and 33% on perfusion and ventilation scans respectively. Inspite of scan showing better percentage uptake on ventilation, predict postoperative based on lung perfusion was not significantly higher (as loss calculated was only 6%). But patient had stormy postoperative period and longer ventilator support was needed as ventilation scan showed he had preserved ventilation (33%) which he lost by penumonectomy
