Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To detect origin and course and to evaluate viability in patients with anomalous RCA.

DESIGN:

3D coronary MR angiography and viability study using gadolinium-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (Gd-MRI) was performed.

SETTING:

A tertiary hospital center.

PATIENTS:

Four patients, selected from the catheter lab, were studied.

RESULTS:

Anomalous RCA from the left sinus of Valsalva was identified in all patients. Inferior myocardial infarction was documented in three patients.

CONCLUSIONS:

Magnetic resonance imaging can non-invasively identify anomalous RCA and perform viability study in the same examination.
