INTRODUCTION Computed tomography angiography (CTA) has been widely used in the diagnostic evaluation of many aortic diseases, but no standardized techniques actually exist for aortic CTA. The aim of this study was to describe the usefulness of triphasic CTA in aortic assessment in both non-traumatic emergency and surveillance conditions. METHODS We performed non ECG-gated CTA examinations with a 64-slice CT scanner using a triphasic protocol consisting of an unenhanced acquisition, and two… CONTINUE READING
