I was looking for a new avatar and one of the things I briefly thought of using was a screenshot of an image of my prosthetic aortic valve from a CT scan I had. It wouldn’t have been very clear in the little avatar circle but I thought it interesting to post the screenshot of it. You can see the three valve leaflets really clearly where that bright part circle thing is !

Great image, Anne. 👌🏼 Incredible to see it in situ and with the leaflets in clear view. Amazing.

*And suspect it should be much easier for members to post all sorts of heart related images and whatnot from here on in, with the forum’s seemingly more stable software now up and running.

I haven't had a chest/heart CT since my valve replacement, but every now and again I get to see my valve on the echo monitor. It sure is a cool thing to see!
