Caption: Abdominal aortic aneurysm. Coloured 3D computed tomography (CT) scan of a 88 year old male patient with a large abdominal aortic aneurysm (dark red). The aorta is the body's main artery, it carries blood from the heart to the rest of the body. An aneurysm is a blood-filled dilation in a blood vessel caused by a weakened vessel wall. Areas of calcification (yellow) are also seen in the blood vessel walls. These are a result of atherosclerosis, the deposit of fatty material along artery walls. If left untreated aneurysms rupture and are often fatal. Treatment is with repair or replacement of the vessel.
