Atlas of Pediatric Cardiac CTA is a concise visible consultant to the imaging of congenital middle illness in babies and youngsters. The ebook makes a speciality of the usage of cardiac CTA imaging for pediatric sufferers as precise from grownup sufferers, with an emphasis on strategies for retrospective and potential scanning, relief of the radiation dose, and CT facts processing and research. It additionally describes cardiac CTA review seek styles to evaluate the advanced anatomy in congenital center sufferers. As pediatric sufferers usually current with a number of findings, separate chapters are dedicated to the foremost buildings of the cardiovascular process, followed with huge imaging examples of the atria, ventricles, nice vessels, coronary arteries, lungs and airlines, and the situs. The booklet concludes with a evaluate of shunts, tactics, and surgical procedures utilized in the administration of this affliction. Atlas of Pediatric Cardiac CTA is a necessary source for radiologists, cardiologists, and different clinicians thinking about the care of pediatric sufferers with congenital middle disease.

The name scimitar comes from the curved appearance of the right lower lobe pulmonary vein, which becomes larger as it approaches the diaphragm and may look like a scimitar sword, especially on chest radiography. 32 Hypogenetic Lung (Scimitar) Syndrome a b F E C B D A c Fig. 12 Posterior projection color-coded 3D model (a) and coronal MIP images (b and c) from a chest CTA showing right lower lobe partial anomalous venous return (B) to the junction between the IVC (C) and right atrium (E). There also is a systemic arterial supply (A) to the right lower lobe from the descending aorta and a hypoplastic right pulmonary artery (F).

Echocardiography provides optimal visualization of the type, size, extent, and number of ASDs. (f) AV valves. There are two AV valves: the tricuspid valve, which drains into the right ventricle, and the mitral valve, which drains into the left ventricle. Anomalies include dilatation, hypoplasia, dysplasia, atresia, overriding annulus, straddling chordae, common AV valve, and the presence of Ebstein’s malformation.

This results in a common AV valve with variable chordal attachments to the ventricle, ostium primum ASD, and AV canal–type (inlet) Fig. 19 Axial CTA image demonstrating a septum primum ASD (C) as well as a posterior-type VSD (A). Blood from the atria and from the left (E) and right (D) ventricles may mix freely. A common AV valve (B) is present. VSD. This may be associated with trisomy 21 as well as heterotaxy syndromes. There also may be a concomitant presence of tetralogy of Fallot. Tricuspid Atresia Tricuspid Atresia Tricuspid atresia is a congenital agenesis of the right AV (tricuspid) valve, preventing forward flow of systemic venous blood from the right atrium to the ventricle.
