Systematic evaluation of complex flow in descending aortic dissection (DAD) is needed to better understand which patients are predisposed to complications. Our goal was to utilize quantitative maps from 4D flow MRI for monitoring true and false lumen (TL, FL) flow characteristics. 4D flow was acquired in 20 DAD patients (6 medically managed, 14 with surgical repair), and 21 age-matched controls. 4D flow-derived quantitative maps demonstrated global and regional hemodynamic differences between DAD patients and controls. DAD patients with and without repair showed significantly altered TL and FL aortic hemodynamics, indicating this technique’s potential to characterize flow dynamics in DAD.
