Radionuclide angiography has been used for visualization of aortic arch pathology. Gated blood pool scintigraphy generally has been reserved for the evaluation of ventricular function. By observing the aorta in relation to other cardiac structures, additional information about relative size and shape is available, and can be integrated with ventriculographic observations. This may enhance understanding of the mechanism of disease in the individual patient. Five selected case histories illustrating this point are presented. The last example demonstrates the ability of the technique to uncover unsuspected thoracic aorta pathologic findings. The sensitivity and specificity of this technique to diagnose aortic disease requires further study.
