Abstract

Anomalies of the coronary arteries are congenital and in most of the cases asymptomatic, although they may present with severe symptoms such as angina pectoris or cardiacarrest. Multidetector CT coronary angiography (MDCTCA) permits, through curved multiplanar reconstructions and three-dimensional reformatting, noninvasive visualisation of the coronary tree and its variants and anomalies, providing a more accurate alternative to conventional coronary angiography (CCA). The purpose of this pictorial essay is to describe the main variants and anomalies of the coronary arteries using MDCT imaging with multiplanar and three-dimensional reconstructions.
