    Video Sequence of Figure 2
    Magnetic resonance imaging. Turbo field echo, free breathing, three dimensional sequence on the short axis plane of the heart and positioned through the origin of the coronary arterial vessels. The black arrows highlight the anomalous course of the circumflex artery originating from the right coronary sinus. The anomalous vessel runs behind the aortic root and finally reaches its normal position in the left atrioventricular groove. Note also the normal site of origin of the right coronary artery.
