In previous research abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) wall stress analysis has proven to be more accurate in rupture risk prediction than the clinically used diameter criterion [1]. Together with Philips Medical Systems (Best, NL), a clinical software tool is created that automatically derives the AAA geometry from patient CT data and performs AAA wall stress analysis (Hemodyn package). Using this software package, the role of intraluminal thrombus (ILT) in AAA wall stress analysis is evaluated in this study.
