    1. Patient Presentation

    • A premature infant boy was referred to the radiology department with a diagnosis of congenital
      heart disease at birth.

    • Echocardiography revealed the presence of atrial and left ventricular septal defects, and was
      unable to document the exact origin and course of the right pulmonary artery.

    • Low-dose CT was performed, using low kilovoltage and milliampere-second settings to achieve
      ultralow dose values.
