Royal Philips has introduced the Philips Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA) Model, said to provide a more patient-friendly solution compared to the current standard of care for managing AAA patients. Based on 3D ultrasound, Philips AAA Model delivers accurate diagnostic information without exposing patients to high doses of radiation and nephrotoxic contrast agents.
Typically, AAAs are identified incidentally during abdominal imaging examinations but, in some cases, remain undetected until rupture. The model integrates innovative software and Philips 3D ultrasound technologies to help increase diagnostic confidence and an improved patient experience. The software automatically segments and quantifies the size of the aneurysm sac for surveillance of known native (untreated) and post-EVAR (treated) AAAs.
