Abstract

Color and duplex Doppler sonography are used in the investigation of bronchopulmonary sequestration because they can identify arterial blood supply arising from the thoracic aorta. Bronchopulmonary sequestration is a congenital abnormality of nonfunctional pulmonary tissue that lacks normal connections with the bronchial tree. The sequestered tissue typically receives the majority of its blood supply from systemic vessels, most often the distal thoracic or upper abdominal aorta. These lesions often are associated with fetal hydrops, polyhydramnios, and persistent masses postnatally.
