Eight-channel multidetector computed tomography: unique potential for pediatric chest computed tomography angiography.
This case report of a possible aortic pseudoaneurysm after coarctectomy in a 12-month-old boy illustrates the unique considerations when performing pediatric cardiovascular CT angiography in young children. With newer (8-channel) multidetector technology, many of the complexities of performing diagnostic angiography, including sedation, breathing artifact, and intravenous contrast material administration, can be reduced or eliminated.
