Figure 1 : 

Axial slices from upper abomen to the thorax level. a: on the abdominal level: the liver is on the left side, corresponding to an abdominal situs inversus; b: on the thoracic level: the inferior venae cavae is connected to the right atrium, the latter being left-sided: atrial situs inversus; c: the right ventricle (with trabeculations) is on the right side of the thorax and the left ventricle on the left one (normal ventricular situs); d: the right atrium is connected to the left ventricle and the left atrium is connected to the right ventricle (atrioventricular discordance). Ao: Aorta; CA: coronary artery; IVC: inferior venae cavae; LA: left atrium; LV: left ventricle; PA: pulmonary artery; RA: right atrium; RV: right ventricle.

Figure 2 : 

Axial slices on heart level from bottom to top. a, b: the aorta is connected to the right ventricle; the pulmonary artery is connected to the left ventricle (malposition and atrioventricular discordance); c: the aorta is anterior and located at the right side of the pulmonary artery; d: both aortic arch and the thoracic aorta are right-sided. Ao: Aorta; CA: coronary artery; IVC: inferior venae cavae; LA: left atrium; LV: left ventricle; PA: pulmonary artery; RA: right atrium; RV: right ventricle.

Figure 3 : 

3D image using volume rendering technique shows a unique coronary artery providing blood supply for both ventricles. Ao: Aorta; CA: coronary artery; IVC: inferior venae cavae; LA: left atrium; LV: left ventricle; PA: pulmonary artery; RA: right atrium; RV: right ventricle.
