First semester M1 here so my (uneducated) guess is an aortic dissection that starts near the heart and continues throughout the arch into the descending aorta.

Another way to tell would be the title of the pictures.

Normal variant, dc home with follow-up next week with patient's PMD for further workup of chest pain radiating to the back. Next!

That is a very cool scan. In a boy am I glad he's not my patient sort of way.

Consult naturopath to handle the medicine end, and get a chiropractor involved to manage the back pain.
