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 information set with the top isotropic spatial solution ever noticeable, providing marvelous 3D photos of the whole middle and vessels.The texts at the moment on hand on cardiac CT imaging often specialize in visualizing pathological facets of coronary arteries. Anatomy of the guts by means of 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 commonly hand-made anatomical dissection.Focusing at the basics in addition to the main points of cardiac anatomy in a medical atmosphere utilizing MSCT, this is often a useful reference for cardiac imaging trainees, cardiologists, radiologists, interventionists and electrophysiologists, delivering a greater knowing of the cardiac buildings, coronary arteries and veins anatomy and their three-d spatial relationships.

The leaflets of the pulmonary and aortic valves have markedly different levels of attachments within their respective ventricles. These features allow the pulmonary valve, including its basal attachments within the infundibulum, to be harvested during the Ross procedure without creating a ventricular septal defect (Fig. 28b). Another important spatial relationship to note is that the posterior (paraseptal) wall of the infundibulum is in close proximity to the main branches of the coronary arteries (Fig.

Circumferential radius of curvature gradually decreases from base to apex. Radius of curvature and wall thickness are related: wall thickness is smallest at the apex where the radius of curvature is also smallest. According to the Laplace law, the small radius of curvature compensates for the greater stress acting over the thinner apical wall (Fig. 25). During systole the ventricle thickens radially (from the epicardium to the center of the cavity, in the direction of radii perpendicular to the long axis) (Fig.
