A CT scan with maximum intensity projection shows an unfolded aorta. Artistically, the mixture of gray-white background with patches of color provides a sense of the mundane with the exciting. For Dr. Davidoff the central position of the white aorta was reminiscent of a main road through the city – perhaps New York city. With the coordinated traffic lights one often gets the sense of easy travel through the city while being surrounded by fashion houses, glitzy stores combined with skyscrapers and warehouses. One may suspect that the red cells whizzing along the aorta may get a similar sense by the surrounding factories, powerhouses, food and storage structures it passes through.
