  • Figure 1
    Frontal chest radiograph

    The chest radiograph demonstrates severe bilateral notching of the posterior ribs, and prominence of the left subclavian artery.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Frontal chest radiograph;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Contrast-enhanced transverse CT scan of the chest

    The scan shows an aortic coarctation just distal to the arch and large internal mammary arteries and bridging mediastinal vessels.

  • Figure 3
    Sagittal maximum-intensity-projection reconstruction CT image of the aorta

    The scan shows an aortic coarctation distal to the origin of the left subclavian artery and large internal mammary arteries and collateral vessels.

  • Figure 4
    Three-dimensional (3D) reconstruction CT angiography of the thoracic aorta

    The image shows circumscribed narrowing of the descending aorta and dilatation of the ascending aorta and left subclavian artery.
