Abstract

Non-invasive imaging is currently applied in diagnosing and monitoring ofabdominal aortic aneurysms. However, the quality of the images and especiallythe visibility of the vessel wall are not optimal for wall stress analysis of orstrain imaging. In this study, enhancement of the aortic wall by compounding ofdifferent images was investigated. In healthy subjects, three images of theabdominal aorta obtained at different angles were combined using three differenttypes of compounding. This pilot study revealed that the contrast of the vesselwall was enhanced significantly with respect to the lumen.
