Peoples Health and AAAneurysm Outreach provide free screenings to save lives.
“This screening test is a simple ultrasound of the abdomen. It only takes a few minutes and is painless,” according to Claudie Sheahan, MD, Associate Professor of Clinical Surgery at LSU Health Sciences Center. “The images will help determine whether or not an aneurysm is present. If the aneurysm is found early, it can be treated to prevent rupturing.”
Individuals must meet eligibility requirements for the screening. Individuals 60 and older who have at least two cardiovascular risk factors and men age 55 and older with a family history of abdominal aortic aneurysm and at least one additional cardiovascular risk factor are eligible for the screening once every five years.
