This stented AAA is displayed on an axial image (CENTER), by 3D reconstruction (TOP RIGHT), on a coronal image (MIDDLE RIGHT), and on a sagittal view (BOTTOM RIGHT). The axial image demonstrates the large AAA (measurement possible with calipers), with thrombosis around the graft limbs and with scattered calciﬁcation on all sides. The 3D volume-rendered view shows only the contrast-ﬁlled aorta, that is, only the lumen of the nonaneurysmal aorta and the graft. EXAMINATION AND IMAGING OF THE AORTA 45 3 Figure 3-24.
The image on the right was obtained by rotating the image, use of bone removal software, and editing. The aorta is now more directly seen: the detail of the overlapping stents, the calciﬁcation of the arch of the aorta, and the markedly tortuous course of the arch portion. 42 EXAMINATION AND IMAGING OF THE AORTA 43 3 Figure 3-21.

Pulsatile abdominal aorta Physical Diagnosis of Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms In slender patients, an expansile epigastric mass fairly reliably indicates an abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA). It is usually located to the left of the midline. However, in obese patients, few AAAs can be detected by palpation. As obesity becomes more prevalent in the industrialized world, the challenge to clinically detect AAAs will only increase. 1 Only about half of AAAs are detected clinically; of 198 patients with AAA presenting during a 3-year period, 48% were detected clinically, 37% were detected radiographically, and 15% were detected at laparotomy.
