This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Screening people at risk for abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) is one of the device-related provisions at stake as US Congress haggles over a fiscal 2006 budget reconciliation bill. The Senate's version of the bill that passed by a 52-47 vote margin on November 3 would pay for a one-time ultrasound screening for beneficiaries with a family history of AAAs or who meet the risk conditions spelt out by the US Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF).
