BACKGROUND The purpose of this study is to assess the feasibility of multidetector-row computed tomography (MDCT) for the quantitative evaluation of pulmonary artery morphology in children with congenital heart disease that is associated with reduced pulmonary blood flow. METHODS Quantification of measurements at the pulmonary artery annulus and right and left pulmonary arteries, and detection of stenoses exceeding 30% diameter reduction were evaluated independently on MDCT and conventional… CONTINUE READING
