CT for assessing feasibility of separation of thoracopagus twins

CT for assessing feasibility of separation of thoracopagus twins

Journal of Computer Assisted Tomography 5(4): 574-576

The value of the angio-computed tomography technique for evaluating communication between cardiac cavities of the two hearts in conjoined twins is reported. After injecting contrast medium into the peripheral vein of one of the twins, the increase in density values of the heart in the other twin suggested shunting between the two hearts.
