64-slice CT imaging in a case of total anomalous pulmonary venous circulation.

Shaheen F, Gojwari TA, Andrabi M, Sofi S, Singh M - Indian J Radiol Imaging (2009)

Bottom Line: For long, catheter angiography has been the investigation of choice for the diagnosis of congenital anomalies of the heart such as total anomalous pulmonary venous circulation (TAPVC).In the last few years, MRI and multislice CT scan have also been introduced for this purpose.We report a case where 64-slice CT scan was found very useful in the evaluation of TAPVC.

Figure 0003: Coronal oblique multiplanar reconstruction (MPR) image shows the confluence of the pulmonary veins into a common channel, which in turn, drains into the SVC

Mentions: Three-dimensional views in various projections [Figures 1 and 2] along with multiplanar reconstructions [Figure 3] showed all the four pulmonary veins confluencing into a common supracardiac channel, which, in turn, was seen joining the superior vena cava. The coronary arteries were normal.
