4-dimensional–flow cardiac magnetic resonance in patients with aortic dissection in chronic/post repair phase as a complementary diagnostic tool for anatomic-functional evaluation. Quali-quantitative analysis of 3 patients with this pathology clearly showing the true/false lumen, quantitative flow in false lumen, and helping in discerning lumen origin from different arterial vessels. (Level of Difficulty: Advanced.)
