Figure 1: (a) Fluoroscopy during cardiac catheterization demonstrating a large major aortopulmonary collateral artery originating from the descending aorta and supplying pulmonary segments of both the right and left lungs. (b) Three-dimensional reconstruction from computed tomography angiography of the same patient showing several major aortopulmonary collateral arteries originating from descending aorta to partially supply both lungs. Three-dimensional capacity of computed tomography angiography avoids superimposition of major aortopulmonary collateral arteries as seen on two-dimensional catheterization
