Cardiothoracic Imaging

Coronary anomalies occur in about 1% of the general population and in severe cases can lead to sudden cardiac death. Coronary computed tomography angiography and magnetic resonance imaging have been deemed appropriate for the evaluation of coronary anomalies by accurately allowing the noninvasive depiction of coronary artery anomalies of origin, course, and termination. The aim of this article is to describe and illustrate a comprehensive array for the classification of coronary artery anomalies.
