Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Model

Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Model

Advanced innovation in surveillance of abdominal aortic aneurysms

 
Abdominal aortic aneurysms cause more than 175,000 deaths globally every year, with an 80% mortality rate if ruptured.i Philips abdominal aortic aneurysm model solution detects, segments and quantifies 3D ultrasound for use in surveillance of native aneurysms and following endovascular aneurysm repair.

Epiq ultrasound screen

Increased diagnostic confidence


3D ultrasound with the AAA Model solution can be used to estimate the diameter and volume of an AAA with acceptable reproducibility and an improved agreement with CT,  and with inter-operator reproducibility superior to that of a 2D ultrasound exam.

Improved patient experience


Philips AAA Model improves the patient experience by eliminating exposure to high levels of radiation and nephrotoxic contrast agents that CT Angiography (CTA) requires, while still providing clinicians with the necessary diagnostic information.

Lower cost of care


The low cost of ultrasound is one reason that it has become the preferred imaging modality for aneurysm screening and surveillance.  The AAA model supports this important ultrasound imaging application.

The AAA model is compatible with:
