Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

CT patterns of anomalous brachiocephalic veins are presented with reconsideration of the structure's embryogenesis.

CONCLUSION:

With advancements in central line procedures and corrective cardiac surgery, and the widespread use of noninvasive imaging techniques, the clinical importance of identification of the anomalous brachiocephalic vein is shown.
