Passen E, Feng Z. Cardiopulmonary manifestations of isolated pulmonary valve infective endocarditis demonstrated with cardiac CT. J Cardiovasc Comput Tomogr. 2015;.
Right-sided infective endocarditis involving the pulmonary valve is rare. This pictorial essay discusses the use and findings of cardiac CT combined with delayed chest CT and noncontrast chest CT of pulmonary valve endocarditis. Cardiac CT is able to show the full spectrum of right-sided endocarditis cardiopulmonary features including manifestations that cannot be demonstrated by echocardiography.
