Abstract.

The diagnosis of a pulmonary vein varix with a recently introduced new CT technology, multi-slice helical CT, is discussed. The advantage of multi-slice helical CT lies in increased thin-slice coverage during a single breath hold, which is the predominant factor limiting scan time. This CT technique facilitates the diagnosis of vascular pulmonary pathology.

Key words: Lung Multi-slice helical CT Vascular lung pathology Pulmonary vein varix
