Aortic Dissection - Diagnosis

Patients with severe chest or back pain, especially those suffering from high blood pressure, may be 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 Computed Tomography (CT) scan, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) or ultrasound (or echocardiogram) is usually needed to confirm the diagnosis.
