Editor-In-Chief: C. Michael Gibson, M.S., M.D. [1]; Associate Editors-In-Chief: Priyamvada Singh, M.B.B.S. [2], Keri Shafer, M.D. [3]; Assistant Editor-In-Chief: Kristin Feeney, B.S. [4]

Chest X Ray

  • Normal or decreased pulmonary vascularity
  • Concave pulmonary artery segment
  • In tetralogy of Fallot, the heart may present with a "boot-like" or "coeur en sabot" appearance (an upturned right ventricular apex and a concave main pulmonary arterial segment), rather than the symmetric appearance of a normal heart.
  • A right sided aortic arch may also be present. There is pruning or reduction in the prominence of the pulmonary vasculature over time.
