Developing a tool having the capability of predicting future AAA growth rate is important in terms of surgical planning and patient management. In this study, 106 CT scan images from 25 Korean AAA patients were retrospectively obtained. 21 geometrical measurements derived from scans, their growth rates, and their pairwise correlations were analyzed, and the predictability of the growth for high-risk aneurysms was attempted to enhance. Furthermore, the prediction model was built specifically on patient characteristics using the various geometrical measurements enhanced the prediction capability of a measurement at any time-point, along with an evaluation of the associated uncertainty.
