I had an echo today & the tech wrote aortic root diameter 6cm and then used the transducer to check my neck and abdomen. Is this serious and will they give me my results quickly if it is?

In brief: Enlarged

It means that your aortic root is enlarged.
This can be serious and you should hear from the doctor reading the test soon.
