The NHS AAA Screening Programme invites men for screening during the year that they turn 65. The programme uses an ultrasound scan to detect aortic aneurysms that need treatment or monitoring.
If you are a man aged over 65 you are more likely to have an abdominal aortic aneurysm. That is why the NHS AAA Screening Programme invites men for screening during the year (1 April to 31 March) that they turn 65. Men over 65 who have not previously been screened or diagnosed with an aneurysm can request a scan by contacting their local programme directly.
Invitations for screening at appropriate times are sent automatically to eligible people registered with a GP
