Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Coronary artery aneurysms, stenoses, and thromboses are significant complications of Kawasaki disease (KD). While appearing in childhood, coronary complications are often left unrecognized until early and mid-adulthood. Along with the increasing capacity of noninvasive coronary artery imaging modalities, especially computed tomography and magnetic resonance, radiologists are more likely to face the diagnosis of KD in adults. This article will review the clinical aspects of KD for radiologists and will compare coronary imaging modalities in the diagnosis of KD.
