There are no CT scan findings associated with pulseless electrical activity. However it can be used to identify some of the causes of pulseless electrical activity like cardiac tamponade, tension pneumothorax.Superior vena cava andInferior vena cava enlargement, Hepatic and renal vein enlargment, Periportal edema, Compression of coronary sinus, Angulation of interventricular septum,Pericardial thickening, Collapse of the right atrium, Aortic blood contrast level these are seen in cardiac tamponade CT.
