The Need for Standardized Methods for Measuring the Aorta Multimodality Core Lab Experience from the GenTAC Registry
Aortic Aneurysm, Thoracic
Laboratory Proficiency Testing
Magnetic Resonance Imaging
Tomography, X-Ray Computed
By comparing core laboratory with measurements from clinical centers, our study identified important sources of variability in aortic measurements. Furthermore, our findings with regard to CT and MRI suggest a need for imaging societies to work toward the development of unifying acquisition protocols and common measuring methods.
