Understanding flow dynamics in type-B aortic dissection (TBAD) is of high clinical interest to predict complications and individualize treatment. Here, we sought to evaluate 4D-flow MRI at high and low spatial image resolution, in comparison to high resolution, high signal-to-noise 2D phase contrast MRI. Further, we compare TBAD hemodynamics and flow alterations owing to changes in tear size. We leverage novel 3D printing technology to manufacture three compliant TBAD models with altered tear morphology and perform pressure- and flow-controlled MRI with an advanced in vitro flow setup.
