Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Congenital thoracic arterial anomalies can be incidentally detected in adults from imaging studies performed for other indications. Multidetector computed tomography plays a critical role in the noninvasive assessment of these anomalies and associated cardiac, mediastinal, or parencyhmal changes by providing volumetric data. Radiologists should be familiar with imaging findings of these anomalies to avoid misinterpretation and to establish accurate diagnosis. In this article, we review the imaging characteristics of congenital aortic (i.e. double aortic arch, right aortic arch, aortic coarctation, pseudocoarctation, interrupted aortic arch, and cervical aortic arch), pulmonary (i.e. idiopathic dilatation, interruption (absence) of the pulmonary artery, pulmonary artery sling, and pulmonary artery stenosis), and aortopulmonary (i.e. transposition of great vessel, truncus arteriosus, aortopulmonary window, and patent ductus arteriosus) anomalies with an emphasis on multidetector computed tomography findings.
