Question
Imaging modalties of the Aorta

Chest Radiography (CXR)
  • CXR has overall limited sensitivity (~30–60 %) for thoracic aortic aneurysm, and
  • alone cannot be used to exclude acute or chronic aortopathy
  • Calcification or tortuosity of the ascending, arch, and descending thoracic aorta may be visualized, but this is a non-specificific finding in the elderly.
  • Opacification of the aortico-pulmonary window, enlargement of the thoracic aorta, [...] mediastinal width, displacement of trachea from midline, or obscured/irregular aortic margin may indicate thoracic aortic aneurysm, dissection, or rupture. Displaced intimal calcium and pleural effusion may indicate dissection.
Answer
increased
