Methods and Materials

The retrospective study was performed at National Cardiac Surgery Center in Astana, Kazakhstan, within October 2011 - December 2015. Eighty six patients with congenital heart disease expected to have TGA (age 0 - 30), underwent conventional echocardiography and Cardiac CT using the 64-slice scanner with prospective ECG-synchronization and slice thickness reconstruction of 0,6 mm. Some patients experienced invasive cardiac angiography. In 80 patients TGA was proved, including 61 D-TGA (79%) and 19 L-TGA (21%). The potential of CT to detect and distinguish both types was analyzed by performing and comparing different studies in sequence. MSCT scanning was performed during breathing and after sedation in infants. Contrast medium (2-4 ml/kg) was administered through an arm vein in all patients.
