    Abstract

    OBJECTIVE: Pseudoaneurysms are not rare, and various conditions can cause a pseudoaneurysm in all the cardiovascular systems. In this article, we discuss and show images of pseudoaneurysms of various arteries caused by various conditions. CONCLUSION: CT, MRI, sonography, and angiography may all be valuable in the imaging workup of pseudoaneurysms. Knowledge of the various appearances of pseudoaneurysms and of the proper management is essential to prevent a catastrophic outcome in cases of pseudoaneurysm.
