The risk of rupture of cerebral aneurysms has been correlated with the size of the aneurysm sac. It is conceivable that geometrical shape, not just size may also be related to aneurysm rupture potential. Further, aneurysm shape may also be a factor in deciding on treatment modalities, i.e., to clip or coil. However, our ability to make use of available information on aneurysm shape remains poor. In this study, methods were developed to quantify the seemingly arbitrary three-dimensional geometry… CONTINUE READING
