Beak sign of arterial dissection

The beak sign of arterial dissection represents a wedge of haematoma at the distal end of the false lumen. It is here that false lumen propagation is occurring. It manifests as an acute angle between the dissection flap and the outer wall. It may be filled with contrast enhanced blood (high attenuation) or thrombus (low attenuation).
