From: Correction to: Reference ranges (“normal values”) for cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) in adults and children: 2020 update

Level Men (n = 208)
mean ± SD (LL–UL)*
Women (n = 239)
mean ± SD (LL–UL)*
Ascending aorta diameter (mm) 27 ± 4 (19–34) 26 ± 4 (18–33)
Proximal descending aorta diameter (mm) 21 ± 3 (15–26) 19 ± 2 (15–23)
Distal descending aorta diameter (mm) 18 ± 3 (13–23) 16 ± 2 (12–20)
  1. Measurements obtained on cross-sectional bSSFP images of the aorta
  2. bSSFP balanced steady-state free precession, n number of study subjects, SD standard deviation, LL lower limit, UL upper limit
  3. *Calculated as mean ± 2*SD
