Abstract

Multislice CT aortography represents a major advance in the noninvasive evaluation of thoracic aortic disease. MSTCA is rapidly becoming the preferred modality for the initial investigation of acute aortic syndromes. Although scan quality is usually excellent, special attention to various technical parameters is required to optimize image quality. Familiarity with diagnostic pitfalls and the common imaging presentations of various thoracic aortic syndromes is necessary for accurate diagnosis.
