The aim of this thesis was to review current knowledge regarding the role of computed tomography (CT) for thoracic aorta pathology assessment as well as to further investigate several aspects of this field.

Due to the vastness of the topic, we focused our attention on specific aspects of aortic diameter measurements and CT imaging after two interventions, namely the Bentall procedure and stent placement for the treatment of aortic coarctation.
