Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

The purpose of this study is to describe the MDCT findings of anomalous pulmonary venous drainage (APVD) in a pediatric population using a 256-MDCT dual-source scanner with a high-pitch protocol.

CONCLUSION:

MDCT is a fast and noninvasive technique that allows detailed and comprehensive visualization of APVD characteristics in a pediatric population. High-pitch acquisitions with scanners using a high volume of coverage permit low radiation doses and are an accurate modality for assessing these patients.
