1. Noninvasive Imaging Approaches to Evaluate the Patient With Known or Suspected Aortic Disease

    Both chronic and acute aortic conditions are challenges for primary care physicians and cardiac specialists. Longitudinal progression of chronic aortic diseases and appropriate timing of open or endovascular surgery are usually derived from serial noninvasive imaging studies. Rapid imaging is necessary as not to delay the diagnosis of a potentially life-threatening diagnosis. Given the frequency of missed cases of dissection, atypical presentation, and time-dependent morbidity and mortality, imaging is paramount for diagnosis and treatment of any aortic disorder. An ideal imaging modality will precisely, safely, and rapidly confirm suspected acute or chronic aortic pathology with quantitative information on aneurysm formation ...
