Hi everyone. I was diagnosed in 2012 with ascending aorta dialation. Echo showed 4.1cm. Now in 2018 echo showed 4.3 but ct scan showed 4.5 cm. which reading do you go by? Dr scheduled another scan in 6 months. Dr said keep up with my daily routines but no heavy lifting. Any feedback would help. Thanks.

Measurements of aortic aneurysms differ when measured on an echo or on a CT scan — one is measured on a bias — the CT scan I believe. And measuring on the bias results in a higher number.
