5 - Is there any evidence that an AAA screening programme is needed?

  • Before any screening programme can be introduced, an organisation called the National Screening Committee considers a number of factors, including:
  • research evidence that the screening programme will be effective; and
  • whether the programme will provide benefits at an acceptable cost.
  • The National Screening Committee (NSC) has reviewed the evidence and recommends a national screening programme for AAA.
