Endovascular aneurysm repair has been used to repair abdominal aortic aneurysms but necessitates surveillance to diagnose the delayed possibility of endoleak formation. Multi-detector computer tomography (MDCT) of the abdomen is one imaging technique used to diagnose enlargement of the aneurysm sac that may be indicative of endoleaks. MDCT has a role in identifying the initial endoleak formation and providing signs suggestive of the specific endoleak subtype; thus it is necessary for radiologists to be familiar with the findings of endoleak seen on MDCT. In this pictorial review, we explore the various types of endoleaks and their appearance on MDCT.
