To review the 64-slice CTA (computed tomography angiography) appearance of anatomical variations in branching pattern of the arcus aorta, and to determine their prevalence in 1001 cases. 1001 cases that underwent carotid CTA (performed by a 64-slice scanner) were included in the study. Seven types of aortic arch were found. In 853 cases (853/1001, 85.2 %) classical branching pattern of arcus aorta (three branches; TB, LCC, LS) was observed. Variations were present in 147 cases (147/1001, 14.7… CONTINUE READING
