Image of the Week – Aortic Dissection

The Image of the Week comes to us from Drs. Kahra Nix, David Zhou, and Shikha Kapil who used ultrasound to evaluate a patient who presented after clinic visit  for cough and an abnormal CXR prompted further work up. Can you interpret the image below that was obtained when the patient arrived in the ED?


Thanks for all of your great images this week!

Happy Scanning!
