Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm: Screening in Men Ages 65 to 75 Years Who Have Never Smoked

Description of Resource: 
The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommends selectively offering screening for abdominal aortic aneurysm in men ages 65 to 75 years who have never smoked rather than routinely screening all men in this group. This is a C recommendation, which means the USPSTF recommends selectively offering or providing this service to individual patients based on professional judgment and patient preferences. There is at least moderate certainty that the net benefit is small.
