Table 3 Examples of descriptions of common congenital heart disease in the segmental sequential nomenclature

From: Technical principles of computed tomography in patients with congenital heart disease

CHD type Sequential segmental analysis
Ventricular septal defect Normal atrial arrangement, concordant atrioventricular and ventriculo-arterial connections, levocardia
+ VSD
Aortic coarctation Normal atrial arrangement, concordant atrioventricular and ventriculo-arterial connections, levocardia
+ Aortic coarctation
Tetralogy of Fallot Normal atrial arrangement, concordant atrioventricular and ventriculo-arterial connections, levocardia
+ VSD with pulmonary stenosis, overriding aorta, right ventricular hypertrophy
Transposition of the great arteries with associated VSD Normal atrial arrangement, concordant atrioventricular and discordant ventriculo-arterial connections, levocardia
+ VSD
Congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries Normal atrial arrangement, discordant atrioventricular and discordant ventriculo-arterial connections, levocardia
Double-outlet right ventricle Normal atrial arrangement, concordant atrioventricular and double-outlet ventriculo-arterial connections from the right ventricle, levocardia
+ VSD
Left isomerism Ambiguous atrial arrangement, ambiguous atrioventricular and ambiguous ventriculo-arterial connections, levocardia
+ Bilateral bilobed lungs with hyparterial bronchus on both sides, polysplenia, interrupted inferior vena cava with azygos continuation
