Abstract

The development and anatomy of the interatrial septum is complex. With the increasing use of cardiac CT and its precise delineation of the anatomy, it is important for the cardiac imager to become familiar with the normal anatomic structures that compose the interatrial septum and their variants. Furthermore, it is important to recognize pathologic processes occurring in this region other than atrial septal defects and potential imaging pitfalls. This pictorial essay provides a detailed review of these topics with emphasis in CT appearance and related technical aspects.
