aortic root dilatation

On an echocardiogram report - in the findings & conclusion it is noted there is aortic root dilatation.  Would this be noted because of the diameter measurement or just from visualizing the picture of the aortic root and seeing that it looks dilated?

Hi,
It is an actual measurement, using a logoriithm, they can get a good measurement from the pictures taken.  You probably have a murmur, slight regurgation back into the left ventricle, also,. The conditions range from, mild, modertate, to severe. Measurements above l.2 cm are not to be concerned about unless there are other symptons, fainting, breathlessness,fatiuge etc.
