Aortic Dissection

Your next patient is a 62yo M brought to the emergency department complaining of acute onset chest pain that radiates to his neck. The EKG is normal sinus rhythm (NSR) with no ischemic changes. The patient’s blood pressure is 164/92 in the right arm; and 132/78 in the left arm. What's the next step for this patient? What labs do we need? What imaging do we need? This is a patient who very well may die today if you don't do things correctly and quickly.
