AbstractCoarctation of the aorta can be evaluated reliably and noninvasively by magnetic resonance imaging. However, the value of different imaging planes in the evaluation of restenosis or aneurysm has not previously been studied. Our purpose was to study the relative sensitivity for oblique coronal and oblique parasagittal magnetic resonance imaging to detect restenosis or aneurysm formation in children following surgical repair or balloon angioplasty of coarctation of the aorta. The study… CONTINUE READING
