Can the overall size of an aortic aneurysm be determined by catheter angiography

Can the overall size of an aortic aneurysm be determined by catheter angiography?

No. Often there is an extensive mural thrombus in an aneurysm, and a large aneurysm can have a normal-sized lumen. Only the lumen is opacified by catheter angiography, and the outer size of the aneurysm cannot be determined by this method.
