Geneva Score Calculator
- The Geneva score is a clinical prediction rule used to determine the pre-test probability of pulmonary embolism based on the patient's risk factors and clinical findings.
- The Geneva score has shown to be as accurate as the Wells score, but it is less reliant on the physicians clinical judgement.
- The Geneva score has been revised and simplified from its original version, but it has been shown to have the same diagnostic utility as the original score.

Interpretation of the Original Geneva Score for PE
Shown below is the interpretation of the Geneva score:
- Score ≤ 4 points: Low probability of PE (~10%)
- Score 5 to 8 points: Moderate probability of PE (~38%)
- Score ≥ 9 points: High probability of PE (~81%)
