Default Pulmonary embolism tx indication


is there a criteria for going straight to the treatments instead of diagnosis(CT, V/P scan) when pulmonary embolism is suspected?
Questions asking to choose between these two seem to come up quite frequently, but I can't find any clear indications (not like skip diagnosing when patient looks severely ill etc.) for treating PE right away.
