How do you test people for AAAs?
The most common and easiest way to see if someone has a AAA is by a simple ultrasound. This is quick, easy, and painless.
Some people may require a CT scan.
Many people have already been screened for a AAA without knowing it. If you’ve ever had a CT scan or ultrasound of your belly in the past for any reason at all (i.e. belly pain, gallbladders, liver, appendix, etc), they usually also saw your aorta and confirmed it was normal.
