Asymptomatic cor triatriatum: Utility of 64-slice multidetector computed tomography with 3-dimensional volume rendering

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The fast scanning time and exceptional resolution of 64-slice multidetector computed tomography have expanded the role of imaging of congenital cardiac anomalies. These disorders involve complex cardiac configurations and require thorough evaluation of the entire cardiopulmonary system. Interactive interpretation of the multidetector computed tomographic volume with multiplanar postprocessing tools is essential for interpretation and display. This case report describes the utility of 3-dimensional volume rendering in the assessment of a patient with asymptomatic cor triatriatum.
