3D rendered CT image of an aortic ductus diverticulum (arrow), a focal bulge of the inferior surface of the aorta at the isthmus or site of the ligamentous remnant of the ductus arteriosus. The ascending (Asc) and descending (Desc) aortic (Ao) segments and the main pulmonary artery (MPA) are shown. 10). Clinical Issues Suspected aortic dissection and pulmonary embolism are among the most common reasons for emergent CT. These protocols account for the some of highest radiation doses in clinical practice because of the need for thin sections of the entire thorax.
Crescentic, low signal intensity (black on white) is present in the ascending aorta (black arrow), and central high signal intensity (white on black) is present in the descending aorta (white arrow). (c) Plot of ﬂow velocity throughout the cardiac cycle reﬂects erroneous quantiﬁcation during cardiac phases with the highest velocity, where aliasing occurs (arrow). 4. (a) Axial post-contrast, fat-suppressed T1-weighted gradient echo image demonstrates a large region of signal void due to magnetic susceptibility artifact.
Indicates that those patients with a Kommerell’s diverticulum are more likely to be symptomatic and require intervention. Prior to surgical intervention, detailed imaging with CT or MRI is generally obtained for surgical planning. 4.
