Abdominal aortic aneurysms

A study carried out by the teams at CHU de Liège revealed that recourse to the PET-CT medical imaging method was efficient in detecting aneurysms that are likely to rupture.

They are currently exploring if a correlation between PET-CT images and the presence of specific molecules in the samples of aortic wall taken from the areas of high metabolic activity in the aneurysm can be detected.

With the collaboration of the Karolinska Institute, the CHU de Liège has launched a systematic screening campaign for abdominal aortic aneurysm, which is funded by Aneurysmal Pathology Foundation (APF).
