Spiral CT section (10-mm) on T12 level depicts an abnormal oval shape of the aortic lumen, the anterior border of which is blurred. The aorta is surrounded by a hematoma, which is anteriorly delineated by the diaphragmatic cruces. This radiological pattern lets a blunt aortic lesion be suspected (From Wintermark M, Wicky S, Bettex D, et al (2000) Trauma of the mediastinum. In Schnyder P, Wintermark M. Radiology of blunt trauma of the chest. Springer, Berlin Heidelberg New York, pp 71-134)
