Abstract

CT often plays an important role in the evaluation of abdominal aortic aneurysms. Many vascular surgeons consider it an integral part of the preoperative assessment of aneurysms. CT is also used to examine symptomatic patients with possible aneurysmal ruptures when the diagnosis is unclear and to study patients with aortic grafts in whom potentially lethal complications, such as graft infection, aortoenteric fistulas, and anastomotic pseudoaneurysms, are clinically suspected. This paper reviews the current role of CT in the assessment of patients with abdominal aortic aneurysms.
