Marfan syndrome is diagnosed based on a thorough physical examination of various body systems and a detailed family history. Certain tests such as an echocardiogram of the heart and a detailed eye examination by an ophthalmologist provide valuable information in the evaluation of patients for the Marfan syndrome. Aortic disorders are diagnosed through a thorough physical examination and a detailed family history with cardiac imaging that include the latest innovations of echocardiograms (ultrasound of the heart), CT Scans (Computerized Axial Tomography) and MRI Scans (Magnetic Resonance Imaging).
