Recent Advances in Imaging Aortic Diseases

Conference paper

Advances in imaging aortic diseases can be presented from several perspectives: technical developments which open new windows into diagnosing and monitoring treatment of aortic disease, and recent anatomical and pathophysiological insights into aortic disease made possible by systematic imaging-pathological correlation of diseased aorta. This talk will focus on a review of recent advances in multi-detector helical CT, MRI, and molecular imaging as they bear on aortic disease, principally aortitis and atherosclerosis, as well as on recent work showing how CT findings corroborate and explain TEE observations in intramural hemorrhage involving the aorta.
