Figure 2
Figure 2 Computed tomography angiogram of the abdomen- shows the abrupt loss of contrast in the aortic lumen indicating the occlusive thrombus that resulted in the patient’s symptoms of back pain and loss of lower extremity motor function due to vascular insufficiency. This imaging modality was chosen to visualize the vasculature to evaluate for aortic dissection, aneurysm, or thrombosis given patient’s symptoms of crushing back pain with lower extremity motor loss. Aortic calcification incidentally visualized.
