We present postmortem computed tomography (pmCT) as well as postmortem magnetic resonance (pmMR) imaging findings in a case of type II DeBakey aortic dissection with a complete rupture of the ascending aorta compared to the findings obtained at forensic autopsy. PmCT only allowed a presumptive diagnosis of aortic dissection based on an anterior mediastinal enlargement. However, at pmMR the dissection including the aortic rupture was clearly visible. Visualization was realized in an unenhanced manner without the need for postmortem angiography.
