The evaluation and diagnosis of thoracic aortic disease using magnetic resonance imaging, including magnetic resonance angiography, is assuming an increasing role in clinical practice. Comparison with other modalities, including computed tomography and echocardiography, is discussed. Newer magnetic resonance imaging techniques, including 3-D breath-hold time-of-flight sequences are highlighted, as well as imaging strategies using standard magnetic resonance imaging techniques. Thoracic aortic disease entities covered include aneurysm, dissection, penetrating ulcers and intramural hematoma, aortitis and infection, tumors, and congenital aortic disease.
