Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms
Identify. Track. Impact.
Abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) can develop slowly over many years and quickly become life-threatening. Because most are asymptomatic, it is crucial to identify AAAs before there are serious complications.
Eon Essential Patient Management (EPM) offers the most powerful solution to identify incidental AAAs, automate screening for eligible populations, and longitudinally track patients who need serial surveillance.
AAAs are diagnosed every year in the U.S.

The Eon Advantage
Using proprietary data science models, Eon offers the most sophisticated approach to positively identify incidentally found AAAs. Eon’s models detect incidental AAAs on Computed Tomography (CT) and CT Angiography (CTA), Fluoroscopy, Magnetic Resonance (MR) and MR Angiography (MRA), radiographs (X-Rays), and Ultrasound exams (US).
Features and Attributes
Many AAAs are discovered incidentally during testing for other conditions. Others may be found during preventive screening for patients with a family history of aneurysms or those who have risk factors like smoking or high blood pressure.
EPM identifies and extracts pertinent information from radiology reports and automatically communicates the next steps to providers and patients.
- Achieves high precision outputs and limits the number of false positives
- Extracts AAA size and finding classifications (e.g., potential aneurysm, ectasia, post-repair status)
- Enters AAA patients into the EPM dashboard for serial surveillance and screening reminders
Whether surgery or regular screening is determined to be the best course of action, AAA patients require long-term serial surveillance to reduce the risk of dissection or rupture.
Approximately 90% of patients only need routine screening and longitudinal tracking, EPM automates repetitive tasks allowing FTEs to spend more time on patient care and less time on admin.
- Ensures patients are tracked and followed according to Society for Vascular Surgery guidelines
- Automates reminders for exams and procedures
- Prioritizes high-risk patients and triggers follow-up for low-risk patients
- Streamlines serial surveillance with proprietary tools that “listen” for exams/procedures to be scheduled and notify providers if they are not
AAA Screening and Surveillance Protocol
|Max Aortic Diameter||Annual Rupture Risk||Screening Frequency|
|<= 2.5 cm||Negative, no follow-up required|
|> 2.5 cm but < 3 cm||Once every 10 years|
|>= 3.0 cm to 3.9 cm||~ 0%||Once every 3 years|
|>= 4.0 cm to 4.9 cm||1%||Once every 12 months|
|>= 5.0 cm to 5.4 cm||11%||
Men: Once every 6 months; elective repair if > 1.0 cm increase over a year
Women: elective repair
|>= 5.4 cm||Elective fusiform repair (men)|
