    Chest X-ray
     

    Chest X-ray in PA projection shows a rounded nodular lesion in the apex of the right upper lobe.

    CT scans
     

    Chest CT scans show irregularly shaped masses in the the left lingular paracardiac region characterized by fast c.e. simultaneously with the main pulmonary artery and right ventricle, thus suggesting PAVMs.-Lung window-

    3D Virtual Reconstruction

    Three-dimensional reconstruction of CT scans has been performed in order to give the surgeons clear data about morphology, position, afferent and efferent vessels.
