Pictorial essay: Coronary artery variants and anomalies.

Rahalkar AM, Rahalkar MD - Indian J Radiol Imaging (2009)

Bottom Line: CT coronary angiography has helped radiologists understand the variations and anomalies of the anatomy of the coronary arteries and, thus, to alert the cardiologist whenever such an anomaly is present.This can be of immense help to the clinician planning interventional procedures such as stenting, balloon dilatation, or graft surgery, particularly when there are secondary changes of calcification, plaque formation and stenosis.
