Validation of an automated segmentation software for abdominal aortic aneurysms

Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is a segmental dilatation of the abdominal aorta exceeding the normal vessel diameter by 50%, 3.0 cm being a recognized threshold. As today, due to current existing solutions, only the maximum diameter is monitored, more complex geometric indicators such as aneurysm volumes help physicians assess risks of ruptures. It is then mandatory to have access to automated aneurysm segmentation tool to extract these volumes. In this project, we aim at validating an automated aneurysm (lumen + thrombus) segmentation software developed by Nurea. For this purpose, we will use a semi-automated software previously developed and validated by our team.
