PMID:  20966309     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this review is to show the range of abnormality involving the aortic valve and ascending thoracic aorta using 64- and 128-MDCT with 2D and 3D CT angiography.
CONCLUSION: Ascending aorta abnormality can be complicated by secondary involvement or associated disease involving the aortic valve, coronary arteries, and heart. Interactive interrogation of high-quality isotropic volumes, with both 2D and 3D rendering tools, is essential to identify the full array of findings for best interpretative performance.
