male, 42 year(s)
 
 
  • Figure 1
    Spiral CT-image post contrast medium

    It shows the precence of a semilunar periaortic fluid area at the descending segment of thoracic aorta.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Spiral CT-image post contrast medium;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Spiral CT-image post contrast medium

    It shows the presence of moderately disomogeneous semilunar periaortic fluid area, suggestive of a recent small bleeding in the context of the aortic wall

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Spiral CT-image post contrast medium;
     
     
  • Figure 3
    MR-images axial T1 W (a) and axial T2 W (b)
     

    It’s well shown the semilunar periaortic fluid

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: MR-images axial T1 W (a) and axial T2 W (b);
