Abstract

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is ideally suited to evaluation of the thoracic aorta because of its ability to demonstrate mediastinal vessels, depict blood flow, and produce direct sagittal images. We present a case in which MRI was used for diagnosis and postoperative follow-up in a patient with a posttraumatic aortic false aneurysm.
