The role of preoperative contrast-enhanced computerized tomography (CT) of chest with three-dimensional (3D) reconstructions was evaluated in neonates with esophageal atresia and tracheoesophageal fistula. This was a prospective study which investigated 30 cases of esophageal atresia with tracheoesophageal fistula. All patients were evaluated preoperatively with contrast-enhanced spiral CT using a low-dose CT protocol. 3D CT reconstruction images were evaluated for the type of esophageal… CONTINUE READING
