  • Aortography

    Distinguishing posterior mediastinal and pulmonary masses from aneurysms and tortuosity of the descending thoracic aorta may be difficult, as five such cases illustrate.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Thoracic Descending Aortography: There is no eveidecne of aortic aneurysm or dissection. The abdominal aorta has mild tortuosity without obstructive diseases.[aapc.com] Both the neoplasms and the aortic aneurysms or tortuosity can compress the same vital mediastinal structures; thus, they may give rise to the same symptoms.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
