The purpose of this case is to analyze the contribution of Volume Rendering Computed Tomography Angiography (CTA) as diagnostic procedure in the diagnosis of aortic coarctation (CoA). A 35 year old male patient was examined, using 64-Row Detector Multislice Computed Tomography. Imaging results and clinical findings were consistent with CoA. The case concluded that CTA is a non-invasive method of investigation of the heart and aortic normal anatomy and congenital variants, and it can be an alternative to the invasive angiographic investigations.
