CT/MR of the Aorta

CT/MR of the Aorta

Saurabh Jha, MD, considers CT vs. MRI for imaging the aorta and offers precautions and counsel on ordering thoracic imaging.  An affiliate of the cardiovascular imaging services at Penn Medicine, Dr. Jha reviews cases from his practice to illustrate the pathology and idiosyncrasies of aortic disease and the comparative strengths of CT over MRI in thoracic imaging. His precautions cover allergy and anaphylactic reactions in the wake of iodinated contrast and patient exclusion criteria.
