Clinical Pearls in Diagnostic Cardiac Computed Tomographic by Muzammil H. Musani, Eric J. Feldmann, Michael Poon

By Muzammil H. Musani, Eric J. Feldmann, Michael Poon

This booklet offers a gently chosen compilation of hard instances consultant of the events and pathologies prone to be encountered while appearing cardiovascular imaging utilizing CT. The stipulations lined comprise coronary artery illness, anomalous coronary arteries, congenital center affliction, coronary artery skip grafts, infectious illnesses, structural middle sickness, tumors, and aortic pathology. The ebook additionally presents insights into a number of scanning ideas geared in the direction of the pre-procedural use of cardiac CTA in sufferers present process atrial traumatic inflammation ablation, thoracic endovascular aortic fix, or transcatheter aortic valve substitute. moreover, scanning strategies for a few of the tougher circumstances cardiac imager may possibly come upon in perform are reviewed. All photographs are high-resolution reproductions, and next cardiac catheterization photographs are incorporated for situations within which obstructive coronary artery sickness was once printed. medical Pearls in Diagnostic Cardiac Computed Tomographic Angiography is particularly designed to fulfill the wishes of citizens, fellows, and physicians who've an curiosity in cardiovascular CT.

Example text

Surgical reconstruction of the pericardium is considered in symptomatic patients. 4 Specific Congenital Heart Defects in the Adult a Fig. 1 (a) Axial near- four chamber maximum intensity projections at the level of the aortic root demonstrates left atrial contrast passing through a defect in the interatrial septum and into the right atrium. These findings are consistent with an atrial septal defect and should be corroborated with other projections and phases. In general, 33 b admixture artifact must be excluded, although it is typically not this robust.

B) An oblique multiplanar reformat at the same level confirms this (arrow). Notice that the right atrium demonstrates prominent admixture artifact, as is typical. No prominent left to right contrast jet is present in this case, due to differences in contrast timing when compared to the first case. (c) Oblique multiplanar reformatted four chamber image at the superior aspect of the interatrial septum delineates the ostium primum defect (arrow). Note, how the contrast at the far left aspect of the right atrium is similar in attenuation to the left atrium, and is free of admixture artifact.

The most common presenting symptoms are related to paroxysmal emboli (stroke). An associated atrial septal aneurysm, defined as a redundancy in the IAS that results in a 10 mm protrusion of the septum beyond its plane [22], should be noted on cardiac imaging. The presence of an IAS aneurysm increases the risk of stroke and may affect the stability of percutaneous closure devices [16, 23]. Rarely, a defect in the roof of the coronary sinus may occur that leads to an abnormal communication between the LA and the coronary sinus.
