abstract

  • This study establishes age- and sex-specific ECG-gated MDCT reference values for thoracic aortic diameters in healthy, normotensive, nonobese adults to identify aortic pathology by MDCT. MDCT measurements of the thoracic aorta should use ECG-gated double-oblique short-axis images for accurate quantification.
