Aortic valve and ascending thoracic aorta: Evaluation with isotropic MDCT

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

OBJECTIVE. The purpose of this review is to show the range of abnormality involving the aortic valve and ascending thoracic aorta using 64- and 128-MDCT with 2D and 3D CT angiography. CONCLUSION. Ascending aorta abnormality can be complicated by secondary involvement or associated disease involving the aortic valve, coronary arteries, and heart. Interactive interrogation of high-quality isotropic volumes, with both 2D and 3D rendering tools, is essential to identify the full array of findings for best interpretative performance.
