Measuring Abdominal Aortic Diameter

The AortaScan AMI 9700 measures abdominal aortic diameter.

In an aging population, an increasing number of patients may be at risk of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA). AAA occurs in about 10% of men over 65 who have risk factors for vascular disease (e.g., obesity, smoking, etc.).1

Rupture of an AAA is most often fatal, causing up to 30,000 deaths a year in the U.S. Early diagnosis, which can include measuring the abdominal aortic diameter, and surgical management have been shown to decrease mortality.1

The AortaScan® AMI 9700 instrument, which measures abdominal aortic diameter, can help physicians identify the presence of AAA. It's quick, noninvasive, accurate, and easy for staff to use—no sonographer is required.
