Anatomy of the Heart by Multislice Computed Tomography by Francesco Faletra, Natesa Pandian, Siew Yen Ho

By Francesco Faletra, Natesa Pandian, Siew Yen Ho

New MSCT machines produce a quantity facts set with the top isotropic spatial solution ever obvious, supplying great 3D pictures of the whole middle and vessels.The texts at the moment on hand on cardiac CT imaging more often than not concentrate on visualizing pathological points of coronary arteries. Anatomy of the guts through Multislice Computed Tomography is the 1st textual content to bridge the space among classical anatomy textbooks and CT textbooks, offering a side-by-side comparability of ‘electronic’ dissection made by means of CT scanning and ordinarily hand-made anatomical dissection.Focusing at the basics in addition to the main points of cardiac anatomy in a scientific surroundings utilizing MSCT, this can be a useful reference for cardiac imaging trainees, cardiologists, radiologists, interventionists and electrophysiologists, supplying a greater realizing of the cardiac buildings, coronary arteries and veins anatomy and their three-dimensional spatial relationships.

Example text

There are important variations in wall thickness, caused mainly by variation in the amount of circumferentially oriented mid-wall fibers (Fig. 23). Stress develops when pressure is applied to a cross-sectional area. According to the Laplace law, wall stress in the left ventricle is determined by the intracavitary pressure  radius of curvature/ twice the wall thickness (Fig. 24). 16 A composition of eight consecutive patients showing the extreme variability of the shape of the left atrial appendage (white circle).

5). 2 3D volume rendering showing the ventriculoinfundibular fold (arrow). View from above and right. Note the conus artery originating independently from the aorta. RAA  right atrial appendage; RCA  right coronary artery. 3 3D volume rendering. Postero-lateral view of the right atrium showing the superior (SVC) and inferior (IVC) venae cavae, the venous component (VC) and the right atrial appendage (RAA). RCA  right coronary artery. (Fig. 6). It is of variable thickness and breadth. When cut in cross-section, the muscular band appears like a bump protruding into the atrial cavity (Fig.

19). The internal appearance of the right ventricle is typical. The shape of the cavity can be imaged as an open “V” with a wide muscular separation between tricuspid and pulmonary valves. (b) dotted line indicates the inferior isthmus whereas the short red line marks the “septal” isthmus. The white dotted line represents the hingeline of the septal leaflet of the tricuspid valve, and the black dotted line represents the tendon of Todaro, which adjoins the free margin of the eustachian valve (blue dotted line).
