  • Figure 1
    Stanford A aortic dissection

    Aortic angiography CT (axial reconstruction) showing an intimal flap on the ascending and descending aorta. It is possible to distinguish the false and the true lumen.

     
    Area of Interest: Arteries / Aorta; Imaging Technique: CT-Angiography; Procedure: Education; Special Focus: Dissection;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Stanford A aortic dissection

    Aortic angiography CT (axial reconstructions) revealing an intimal flap on the brachiocefalic artery.

     
    Area of Interest: Arteries / Aorta; Imaging Technique: CT-Angiography; Procedure: Education; Special Focus: Dissection;
     
     
  • Figure 3
    Stanford A aortic dissection

    Aortic angiography CT (axial reconstruction) showing an initial flap on the aortic arch.

  • Figure 4
    Stanford A aortic dissection

    Aortic angiography CT (sagittal reconstruction) revealing an intimal flap extending through the aortic arch,brachiocefalic artery and descending aorta.

     
    Area of Interest: Arteries / Aorta; Imaging Technique: CT-Angiography; Procedure: Education; Special Focus: Dissection;
     
     
  • Figure 5
    Stanford A aortic dissection

    Aortic angiography CT (axial reconstruction) showing an intimal flap on the abdominal aorta. There are some asymmetry in the renal parenchyma enhancement, which is reduced on the left kidney.
