Today is Wisdom Wednesday (Part 2) and Aortic Disease Awareness Month with Aortic Hope.
The most common methods for visualizing aneurysms and dissections are by echocardiogram or transesophageal echocardiography (TEE), computerized tomography (CT) scan, or magnetic resonance angiography (MRA).
We thought you would find it interesting to see some pictures representing tests that take place within the community!
