Abstract

A 72-year-old male was found on USS to have a ­6.3-cm infra-renal aortic aneurysm. He had a 2-year history of treated adenocarcinoma of the prostate. The PSA had reduced from 32 ?g/L (at diagnosis) to <0.04 ?g/L with Casodex alone and was stable. He was referred to the vascular surgeons who requested an MDCT of his aorta prior to consideration for surgery (Images 1a–c and 2a–c).
