The aneurysm is more common in men over 65 years old.
The aneurysm is a bulging or swelling in the abdominal aorta, the main blood vessel that brings blood from the heart to the tummy and lower part of the body.
Severely dilated vessels (more than 5 cm) or aneurysms are fatal and can cause sudden death if they burst.
The aneurysm can happen in other main arteries such as iliac, femoral, or popliteal arteries (Abdomen and leg arteries) or even in the brain arteries.
The Abdominal aorta aneurysm Ultrasound diagnostic examination includes the evaluation of the Abdominal Aorta, Common iliac, External and internal iliac, and common femoral arteries.
It can be serious if aneurysm isn’t spotted initially, because it could become bigger and finally burst (rupture).
An Abdominal Aorta Ultrasound Scan is a non-invasive imaging test that uses ultrasound technology to assess the abdominal aorta, the main blood vessel supplying blood to the abdomen, pelvis, and legs. It is commonly recommended to detect aneurysms, blockages, or other abnormalities.

During the scan, a transducer is used to emit sound waves into the abdominal area. These waves create images of the abdominal aorta, helping assess its size, shape, and detect any abnormalities such as an aneurysm.
The duration of the scan may vary, but on average, the procedure takes approximately 20 minutes, depending on the extent of the examination.
Typically, no specific preparations are needed. You may be asked to fast for a few hours before the scan, and any additional instructions will be provided during the appointment booking process.
