2 - What is AAA screening?

  • AAA screening involves having an ultrasound scan to measure the size of your abdominal aorta. It is the best way of detecting an AAA.
  • The ultrasound scan for AAA screening only takes a few minutes.
  • About 95 out of every 100 men screened are told that they have a normal screening result and are not offered any further tests.
