Three-dimensional Ultrasound Volume Measurements in an Aortic Aneurysm Model
Measuring the aneurysm sac’s size is vital in postoperative surveillance following endovascular treatment of aortic aneurysms. A three-dimensional ultrasound technique may enable accurate volume measurements. However, there is no validation of any commercially available electro-mechanical 3D ultrasound equipment or of the software used when measuring the volume of the aortic aneurysm sac. This investigation used a phantom model to study a three-dimensional ultrasound technique on aortic aneurysm sac volume measurements. High volume measurement accuracy indicates that this method may be useful for postoperative surveillance following endovascular aortic aneurysm operations. These results must be confirmed in clinical studies.
