A sample of 50 patients (22 males and 28 females) with clinically diagnosed of PE , underwent CTA and were grouped according to sex, according to age the study finding in 20 patients (40%) with age range (66-75) years,15 patients (30%) with age range (56-65) years ,8 patients (16%) with range (35-45) years, 7 patients (14%) with range (46-55) years ,and , according to this result PE is more common in elder patients (66-75) years, the incident of pulmonary embolism is common in elder patients.
