Preparation for the Scan

No special preparation is needed for an AAA Screening. You can eat and drink normally before the scan and take any prescribed medications as usual.

What to Expect on the Day

The AAA Screening is a quick and painless procedure that typically takes about 10-15 minutes. You may feel slight pressure as the ultrasound probe is moved over your abdomen, but it should not cause any discomfort.

After the Scan

After the scan, you can return to your normal activities immediately. The results will be sent to your doctor, who will discuss them with you at a follow-up appointment.

Alternative Imaging Options

Other imaging options, such as CT or MRI scans, may be used based on your symptoms and the consultant's decision. These scans can provide more detailed images but may expose you to radiation.
