Vascular Diseases of the Thorax
Computed Tomography Angiography (CTA) is used both in emergency settings to identify acute pathologies such as acute aortic syndromes and in routine clinical practice to detect or monitor aortic diseases and to identify acute pulmonary embolism. It is a fast and easily available procedure, thanks to its high temporal and spatial resolution and to the widespread availability on the territory, providing a panoramic view of the entire cardiopulmonary structures. Moreover, the volumetric acquisition allows to obtain multiplanar reconstruction (MPR) and three-dimensional volume rendering (3D-VR) that make CTA the main reference for treatment planning.
