- -We evaluated the distance between the right common iliac artery and lumbar vertebra
- -Distances were greater in men
- -There was a statistically significant relationship with age
- -Linear regression model showed a strong correlation between LVBIAD and LCIVD
Abbreviations:BMI (body mass index), CIV (common iliac vein), CT (computed tomography), DVT (deep vein thrombosis), IVC (inferior vena cava), IVUS (intravascular ultrasound), LCIA (left common iliac artery), LCIV (left common iliac vein), LCIVD (left common iliac vein diameter), LVBIAD (lumbar vertebral body–iliac artery distance), MRI (magnetic resonance imaging), RCIA (right common iliac artery), RCIV (right common iliac vein)
