Course Summary

Although not all aneurysms pose a problem, they can be a risk factor for other issues, including blood clots, pain, and aneurysm rupture, which is almost always fatal without immediate medical treatment. It is imperative that medical professionals are able to recognize those individuals with high risk factors and provide adequate screening, as well as to quickly and effectively diagnose ruptures to reduce the likelihood of mortality. The various types of aneurysms, diagnostic measures and interventions are discussed.
