Abstract

Sixteen-slice multidetector CT findings of a case of constrictive pericarditis in a pediatric patient are presented. Multidetector CT depicted a variety of diagnostic findings including dynamic evaluation of interventricular septal motion through the cardiac cycle, documenting a diastolic septal bounce. This case illustrates the full capabilities of multidetector cardiac CT in the evaluation of pericardial pathology.
