Click 66 year old Male with Left Upper Lobe Partial Anomalous Pulmonary Venous Connection.
Multiple axial CT images were obtained of the thorax. A Vertical Vein is demonstrated coursing along the left aspect of the mediastinum connecting to the Brachiocephalic vein. The left upper lobe pulmonary veins drain into this Vertical Vein and not into its normal connection at the Left Atrium. The remainder of the pulmonary vein connections from other lobes are normal into the Left Atrium. There is an 8mm calcified nodule within the left upper lobe consistent with a benign granuloma.
Protocol: Phillips CT scanner, 170 mA, 120 kV, 3 mm slice thickness, 100 cc IV of Optiray 300.
