Figure 3 (A-D): Aortic lesions. Axial CT scan (A) shows a flap in the ascending and descending aorta (arrows), consistent with a Type A dissection. Axial CT scan (B) shows a high attenuation intramural lesion in a patient who presented with acute chest pain. Non-contrast CT scan showed high attenuation in the wall (not shown here). The appearances are consistent with intramural hematoma. Sagittal reconstructed CT scan (C) shows a discrete narrowing of the aortic arch (arrow) just beyond the origin of the left subclavian artery, consistent with aortic coarctation. Axial reconstructed MIP image (D) in a patient with history of pulmonary atresia shows a normal left pulmonary artery (LPA). The right pulmonary artery is absent and the right lung is supplied by a major aortopulmonary collateral (MAPCA) originating from the proximal descending thoracic aorta (arrow)
