Because of the high mortality rate of ruptured AAA and the curable nature of the disease when detected early, there is a clear public health incentive to capture these at-risk patients for screening. Ultrasound screening in the emergency department of asymptomatic high risk patients is a fast and accurate method for identifying patients with AAA who may benefit from follow-up or intervention. Screening for a disease can burden a population with the cost of the test and provoke anxiety in those being tested.
Its drawbacks include that imaging is operator dependent, and while ultrasound is excellent for the detection of AAA, it cannot reliably be used to determine the presence or abscess of retroperitoneal rupture. However, in the scenario of acute rupture, an unstable patient and an ultrasound positive for the presence of AAA is enough to activate the operating room. CT of the abdomen is very sensitive for AAA. In addition, it provides information regarding the extent of the lesion, which may aid the operative strategy Imaging: Ultrasound Versus Computer Tomography (CT) In a meta-analysis of AAA surveillance it was found that abdominal ultrasound can reliably visualize the abdominal aorta in 99% of people (Figs.
