In this webinar, the clinically relevant thoracic aortic pathology including the aortic root and aortic valve would be introduced. Three case examples of current imaging findings encountered in general practice along with the nuances of choosing amongst imaging modalities for ongoing surveillance and the frequency of such investigations will be discussed. The webinar will also include a simplified algorithm to assess and decide on management steps, including recognising urgent referrals of symptomatic patients. The three case study examples would be then applied to the algorithm to illustrate the usefulness of a systematic approach to the clinical problem of TAA.
