Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA)
Abdominal aortic aneurysm is a serious condition whereby the aorta swells & can burst, without warning; it is the thirteenth commonest cause of death in the United Kingdom.
We have shown that new imaging techniques using PET & MR scanning can predict how quickly these swellings grow & whether or not patients will suffer a major event. This has important potential implications for how these patients will be monitored & treated in the future.
