chest pain is a common presentation in the emergency department environment. Although most cases of chest pain that present in the emergency department are eventually diagnosed as non-cardiovascular aetiology, it is important to exclude acute life-threatening conditions such as acute myocardial infarction, pulmonary embolism, visceral perforation and aortic dissection. This publication aims to show the importance of CT Angiography in the diagnosis of this disease and to review the updated bibliography.
