Though invasive coronary angiography is the gold standard for the diagnosis of coronary artery aneurysms, computed tomography angiography may be just as useful in providing details of their morphology, size, location and associated stenosis or ectasia. Besides, it has the advantage of being a non-invasive modality.We present a case in which an aneurysm, which was not identified by conventional angiography due to the presence of thrombus, was correctly identified by computed tomography angiography.
