Abstract

OBJECTIVE. The purpose of this article is to review the normal anatomy of the aortic arch and the most common variations of congenital aortic arch anomalies using low-radiation- dose, defined as a dose-length product of 7-15 mGy x cm, MDCT angiography. CONCLUSION. Radiologists should be prepared to fully describe congenital aortic arch anomalies; recognize them on CT angiography, especially the presence or absence of vascular rings or aberrant arteries; and explain their association with the trachea and esophagus.
