Chest roentgenography as a window to the diagnosis of Takayasu's arteritis

The American Journal of Roentgenology, Radium Therapy, and Nuclear Medicine
Y M Berkmen, A Lande


The chest roentgenographic findings in Takayasu's arteritis include widening of the ascending aorta, contour irregularities of the descending aorta, arotic calcifications, pulmonary arterial changes, rib notching, and hilar lymphadenopathy. The single most important diagnostic sign is a segmental calcification outlining a localized or diffuse narrowing of the aorta. The other signs may be suspicious or suggestive, but the diagnostic accuracy increases when several findings are present simultaneously.
