Will a CT angiogram of the coronary arteries reveal a pulmonary embolism or other lung disease and is it harmful to have 2 CT scans in the same month?

It might: A CT angiogram or the coronaries might show a pulmonary embolism, provided that the radiologists obtained full field of view reconstructions (some do not) and the pulmonary embolism is not higher or lower than the field of view. most often, the answer would be yes, a significant PE would be identified on this type of scan. having two ct's in the same month is not optimal, but likely of no harm. ...Read more

Baby had  pulmonary atresia intact septum, ultrasound showed there was a connection between the right ventricle and the right coronary, how?

No known cause: There is no known cause of pulmonary atresia with an intact ventricular septum, a congenital heart disease. It does not seem to be genetic. Now that ultrasound has discovered it, you and your doc can discuss the next steps. Here is a great pamphlet written for parents on it, by the British Heart Foundation.

My cardiac MRI showed persistent left sided superior vena cava drains into a dilated coronary sinus w/ mild dilation of the main pulmonary artery?

My cardiac MRI showed persistent left sided superior vena cava drains into a dilated coronary sinus w/ mild dilation of the main pulmonary artery?

Mostly a normal: Variant. Every fetus has one, but in most it involutes before birth. 0.3% of the general population has one. It is the most common variation of the thoracic venous system.
