  • Figure 1
    3D CT angiographic appearances of right common carotid artery pseudoaneurysm

    On 3D CT angiography, pseudoaneurysm formation connecting the common carotid artery with a narrow neck is seen.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: 3D CT angiographic appearances of right common carotid artery pseudoaneurysm;

    On axial CT section through the carina shows right pulmonary artery aneurysm.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Spiral CT sections through the pulmonary arteries aneurysms;

    Slightly lower level a second aneurysm is seen in descending branch of left pulmonary artery.

  • Figure 3
    The angiographic appearances of bilateral pulmonary artery aneurysms

    Angiography shows an aneurysm at the right pulmonary artery measuring approximately 30 mm in diameter and three aneurysms in the branches of left pulmonary artery measuring approximately 10 mm in diameter.
