Multislice CT in congenital heart disease: Partial anomalous pulmonary venous connection

Pediatric Cardiology
Sergio MoralJaime Aboal

Abstract

Computed Tomography (CT) is increasingly becoming an imaging technique for congenital heart diseases, particularly for the diagnosis of partially anomalous pulmonary venous connections. When echocardiography cannot provide the diagnosis, multislice CT offers some advantages in comparison with RMN and angiography.
