    Contrast Enhanced Spiral CT of the abdomen
     

    The image shows the diameter, lenght and renal interest of the aneurysm

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Contrast Enhanced Spiral CT of the abdomen;

    In this is well shown the aneurismatic wall, with calcium deposits, surrounded by a soft tissue mass which relatively displaced the aortic lumen.

    MRI Image Axial plane

    The residual lumen is surrouded by concentric layers of both low and high signal intensity simmetrically surronding the aortic lumen.
