Aortic dissection is a rare disease with fatal outcomes. Incidence of aortic dissection has recorded 5-30 cases per 1 million people per year in United States. Clinical symptoms usually mimicrize Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS). The role of MSCT to describe incomplete triple rule out in acute chest pain clearly informs about the anatomy of coronary artery, aortic structure and anatomy of pulmonary artery. The main goal is to prevent misdiagnose and appropriate management and treatment of the underlying disease. We reported a case of Aortic dissection DeBakey type IIIb Stanford B. Male, 63 years old with chief complain of acute chest pain. At that time he was diagnosed as ACS. Detection of aortic dissection found incidentally when patient performed MSCT of coronary artery with incomplete triple rule out halpern, and then continues with MRI of aortic structure without contrast to find the entry tear side. Patients had appropriate management and treatment as aortic dissection; anti hypertension to control blood pressure and performed non-surgical intervention Thoracic Endovascular Aortic Repair (TEVAR).
