Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm: Screening in Women Ages 65 to 75 Years Who Have Ever Smoked

Description of Resource: 
The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) concludes that the current evidence is insufficient to assess the balance of benefits and harms of screening for abdominal aortic aneurysm in women ages 65 to 75 years who have ever smoked. This is an I statement, which means evidence is lacking, of poor quality, or conflicting, and the balance of benefits and harms cannot be determined.
