  • Figure 1
    Coronary arteries ectasia: 2D images
     

    Axial image shows ectasia of the distal segment of the left main coronary artery and the proximal segment of the left descending artery.

     
    Area of Interest: Cardiovascular system; Imaging Technique: CT-Angiography; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Aneurysms;

    Curved Planar Reconstruction shows ectasia of the distal segment of the left main coronary artery and the proximal segment of the left descending artery. A mixed plaque determines lumen stenosis less than 50%.

     
    Area of Interest: Cardiovascular system; Imaging Technique: CT-Angiography; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Aneurysms;

    Curved Planar Reconstruction shows ectasia of the circumflex artery.

     
    Area of Interest: Cardiovascular system; Imaging Technique: CT-Angiography; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Aneurysms;

    Axial image shows aneurysm of the distal segment of the right coronary artery with extensive periluminal thrombosis.

     
    Area of Interest: Cardiovascular system; Imaging Technique: CT-Angiography; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Aneurysms;

    Curved Planar Reconstruction shows ectasia of the middle segment of the right coronary artery and an aneurysm in its distal segment.

     
    Area of Interest: Cardiovascular system; Imaging Technique: CT-Angiography; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Aneurysms;

    Curved Planar Reconstruction shows a mixed plaque at the origin of the first obtuse marginal branch.

     
    Area of Interest: Cardiovascular system; Imaging Technique: CT-Angiography; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Arteriosclerosis;
