Splanchnic artery aneurysms are localized vascular dilatations
having a progressive evolution and leading towards severe complications
(depletive rupture, distal emboli, organ ischemia). Treatment
can be efficient when the condition is detected in time. The imaging
techniques are highly efficient when it comes to detecting and
locating splanchnic aneurysms. Each method has its own features.
By knowing them, there is a better chance to track down the disease
at an early stage.
