BACKGROUND The risk of aneurysm rupture appears to be related to multiple factors such as topology, morphology, size, perianeurysmal environment, and blood flow hemodynamics. OBJECTIVE To evaluate aneurysm morphology and to quantitatively compare the volumetric parameters between ruptured and unruptured aneurysms from our clinical database at the UCLA Medical Center. METHODS Novel algorithms that automatically compute aneurysm geometry were tested on the basis of voxel data obtained from… CONTINUE READING
