Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm: Screening in Women

Description of Resource: 
The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommends against routine screening for abdominal aortic aneurysm in women who have never smoked. This is a D recommendation, which means the USPSTF recommends against the service. There is moderate or high certainty that the service has no net benefit or that the harms outweigh the benefits.
