Fusiform aneurysmal dilatation with mural thrombosis of the suprarenal abdominal aorta. The celiac trunk originates from the lowermost part of the aneurysm. No aneurysmal rupture. No retroperitoneal hematoma.
Atherosclerotic plaques are seen within the rest of the abdominal aorta and iliac arteries. Multiple biliary cysts are seen. Multiple left renal cortical cysts of Bosniak I classification.
Minimal left-sided pleural effusion with underlying atelectasis.
CT is highly sensitive and specific for the detection of abdominal aortic aneurysms. CT also provides information on the shape of the aneurysm and its relation to the visceral and renal vessels.
