Table 2 Correlation of the aortic diameter (maximum size) obtained by the different techniques (TTE/CT/intraoperative view)

From: Feasibility and accuracy of bedside transthoracic echocardiography in diagnosis of acute proximal aortic dissection

Correlation between the methods Max. diameter ± SD [mm] Mean difference ± SD [mm] r p
TTE vs CT 56,46 ± 10,79 vs 58,76 ± 11,96 3,89 ± 3,88 0,869 <0,001
TTE vs intraop 56,46 ± 10,79 vs 62,02 ± 15,30 4,22 ± 5,26 0,844 <0,001
CT vs intraop 58,76 ± 11,96 vs 62,02 ± 15,30 3,94 ± 5,59 0,838 <0,001
