Abstract

OBJECTIVE. The goal of this study was to show the ability of 3D MDCT angiography to display the arterial and venous vascular anatomy of pulmonary sequestration in children. CONCLUSION. MDCT angiography with 3D rendering shows the anomalous feeding artery and the draining veins that allow a diagnosis of pulmonary sequestration. These features may prove useful in distinguishing intra- and extralobar sequestration and in surgical planning.
