Radiology Cases of Hemivertebra

Angiogram of cross fused renal ectopia
AP image from a selective angiogram injection of the left renal artery shows fusion of the medial aspect of the left kidney, which has crossed the midline, to the medial aspect of the right kidney, causing the right kidney to be displaced laterally. A right hemivertebra is also present just above the T10 vertebral body.
CXR of congenital scoliosis due to hemivertebra
CXR AP shows a round soft tissue density in the superior and medial aspect of the right hemithorax which was found on cross sectional imaging to be in the posterior mediastinum, along with multiple hemivertebra segmentation anomalies of the lower cervical and upper thoracic spine causing a curvature of the upper thoracic spine convex to the right.
