Following surgical repair or replacement of the thoracic aorta, interpretation of CT and MRI scans of the thorax can be confusing. It is important to be aware of the variety of appearances that can be encountered. There is usually a surgical explanation and close collaboration with surgical colleagues is required. An appreciation of the normal post-operative appearances allows recognition of the abnormal. Potential pitfalls in interpretation are discussed.
