PMID:  15515829     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We report magnetic resonance angiographic demonstration of both an anomalous pulmonary venous drainage and an anomalous systemic arterial supply in a patient with scimitar syndrome. Contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance angiography provides an excellent non-invasive diagnostic tool for demonstrating this complex congenital lesion in detail. A two-dimensional and colour Doppler echocardiography was also performed to show the anomalous venous drainage and to analyse the anomalous flow velocity pattern.
