Acute aortic injuries are not common in the setting of severe blunt trauma, but lead to significant morbidity and mortality. High-quality MDCT with 2D MPRs and 3D rendering are essential to identify aortic trauma and distinguish anatomic variants and other forms of aortic pathology from an acute injury. Misinterpretation of mimics of acute aortic injury can lead to unnecessary arteriography and thoracic surgery. Since most traumatic injuries occur in the distal arch, radiologists must be cognizant of the range of appearances of variants related to the ductus diverticulum. Cinematic rendering (CR) is a new 3D post-processing tool that provides even greater anatomic detail than traditional volume rendering. In this case series, CR is used to impart to radiologists a better understanding of various anatomic configurations that can be seen with a ductus diverticulum.
