CT Angiography of the Aorta and Aortic Diseases


Journal Article (Review)

CT angiography (CTA) is a well established first line imaging modality used to assess diseases of the vasculature. In recent years new technologies, such as cardiac-gating, dual energy, high-pitch helical scanning, and iterative reconstruction have offered new and innovative means of imaging diseases of the thoracic aorta. In addition, recent research has further deepened our understanding of many of these well known diseases. A brief review of new CT technologies, our new knowledge of aortic diseases, and how to utilize modern CTA techniques to evaluate diseases of the aorta is presented herein. © 2012 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC.
