Abstract

Pulmonary sequestration has always been diagnosed by direct demonstration of the vessels tributary to the lesion, usually by angiography. Conventional CT can identify the arterial supply in only two thirds of cases. We report a case of pulmonary sequestration diagnosed using Spiral CT, based on the demonstration of both arterial supply and venous drainage. The capabilities of Spiral CT to detect subtle vessel abnormalities and to yield reliable multiplanar imaging enabled us to show the whole course of both the j artery and the vein tributary to the lesion. Axial images were the most useful ones to diagnose pulmonary sequestration; 2D and 3D reconstructions were useful for a detailed and immediate spatial depiction of the parenchymal abnormality and of its vascular pedicle.
