Pulmonary thromboembolism may be accompanied by pulmonary infarction. Even though pulmonary thromboembolism (PTE) is a frequently found cause of death at autopsy, pulmonary infarction accompanying PTE is a less common finding and may therefore easily be misinterpreted as infectious or cancerous lung disease. Appearance of pulmonary infarction in post-mortem imaging and acquisition parameters helping to identify pulmonary infarctions are not described yet. Based on a case of a 50-year-old man who died due to PTE and presented pulmonary infarction, we suggest using a pulmonary algorithm in post-mortem computed tomography combined with post-mortem magnetic resonance imaging of the lungs using conventional T1- and T2-weighted sequences.
