Aortic Dissection - Diagnosis

​Patients with severe chest or back pain, especially those suffering from high blood pressure, are suspected of having aortic dissection. Chest x-ray showing widening of the tissue in the middle of the chest is suggestive of aortic dissection. However, a CT (Computed Tomography) scan, MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) or ultrasound is usually needed to confirm the diagnosis.
