New imaging tracer allows early assessment of abdominal aortic aneurysm risk

20:00 EDT 31 Jul 2017 | AAAS

(Society of Nuclear Medicine) Yale University researchers have developed a way in which medical imaging with SPECT/CT could potentially be used to assess a patient's rupture risk for abdominal aortic aneurysm. Delaying surgical treatment can be life-threatening, and this new type of imaging could allow physicians to diagnose disease and better plan its management. The study is presented in the featured article of the August issue of The Journal of Nuclear Medicine.
