Intimal tear without hematoma: an important variant of aortic dissection that can elude current imaging techniques.
BACKGROUND The modern imaging techniques of transesophageal echocardiography, CT, and MRI are reported to have up to 100% sensitivity in detecting the classic class of aortic dissection; however,Expand
