The contrast-enhanced CT scan coronal image on the right reveals the underlying dissection that resulted in the false lumen that widened the wall of the aorta and displaced the calcium within the intimal plaques. The aortic contour is abnormal on the chest ﬁlm; intimal calciﬁcation is a more speciﬁc radiographic sign of acute aortic dissection, although insensitive. Figure 3-3. These plain anteroposterior and lateral chest radiographs do not show ﬁndings speciﬁc for a particular aortic disease but do show a dilated ascending aorta.
Aberrant right brachiocephalic artery is a rare occurrence. The sidedness of the arch is with respect to the tracheal air column. Right-Sided Aortic Arch A right-sided aortic arch (Fig. 2-9) is most commonly associated with an aberrant left subclavian artery and is seldom associated with congenital heart disease. Its branches include the left common carotid artery, the right common carotid artery, the right subclavian artery, and an aberrant left subclavian artery. The mirrorimage type of aortic arch is often associated with congenital heart disease (usually cyanotic).
Figure 3-19. These contrast-enhanced axial CT images of the thoracic aorta depict an aneurysm of the ascending aorta. The diameter of the descending portion is normal. The right slice is at the level of the ﬂoor of the arch and shows a fold of the ﬂoor—pseudocoarctation. Figure 3-20. Contrast-enhanced 3D volume-rendered CT images. The reformatted image on the left reveals sternal wires, the thoracic cage, the heart cavities, and the stented thoracic aorta. The image on the right was obtained by rotating the image, use of bone removal software, and editing.
