Abstract

Coronary MR angiography can be useful for noninvasive diagnosis of potentially life-threatening coronary artery anomalies. However, there has been no report to date on MR demonstration of acute myocardial infarction associated with right coronary artery anomaly. A 55-year-old man was admitted with chest pain. Catheter coronary angiography revealed an anomalous origin with compression in the proximal segment of right coronary artery. Breath-hold MR angiography using spiral acquisition technique showed that the right coronary artery originated from the left coronary sinus with a separate os. The proximal segment of the artery was compressed by right ventricle outflow tract during the diastolic phase of cine MR imaging. Contrast-enhanced MR imaging 5 minutes after Gd-DTPA injection showed hyperenhancement suggestive of acute myocardial infarction in the posteroinferior wall of the left ventricle.
