OBJECTIVE. The purpose of this article is to review our experience with the use of MDCT and 3D imaging in the detection and management of patients with both symptomatic and asymptomatic splanchnic artery aneurysms. CONCLUSION. Although splanchnic artery aneurysms are relatively rare, they are being diagnosed with increased frequency given the widespread availability of MDCT and 3D imaging capabilities. It is important that these aneurysms be diagnosed accurately because they can carry a high morbidity and mortality, even in asymptomatic patients.
