A neonate, born with cyanosis and tachypnea, was presented to the hospital. An echocardiography revealed an atrial septal defect (ASD), a pulmonary valve stenosis (PVS), a patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) and a tricuspid regurgitation. Pulmonary balloon valvuloplasty (PBV) was indicated and a CT examination was requested to confirm the echocardiography findings and to evaluate the respiratory system prior to the intervention.
