  • AIMS Abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) are often diagnosed at time of (impending) rupture leading to a dramatic increase of morbidity and mortality. A simple screening device might be the key solution for widespread AAA screening. This study evaluated the diagnostic accuracy of a new portable ultrasound scanner (Aortascan BVI 9600) developed for automatic AAA detection. METHODS AND RESULTS A total of 150 patients with presumed aneurysmatic peripheral atherosclerotic disease were included in… CONTINUE READING
