There is a large main pulmonary artery (arrow), and the central pulmonary arteries are also enlarged (arrowhead); indicative of pulmonary artery hypertension. (B) CT demonstrates that the main pulmonary artery (PA) is massively dilated. (C) Maximum-intensity projection sagittal reconstruction CT shows the patent ductus arteriosus (arrow) between the superiorly located aorta and the inferiorly located, massively dilated pulmonary artery.
