Should You Be Screened for Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA)?

You could be at risk for abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA), an enlargement in your body's largest artery, which typically has no symptoms.

While AAA is a potentially life-threatening condition, the good news is that screening — key to effective AAA treatment — is simple and non-invasive.

More good news!  Stony Brook Medicine's Vascular and Endovascular Surgery Division provides free-of-charge screenings for eligible individuals.

Take a moment to evaluate the risk factors listed below to determine if you should receive an AAA screening. Place a check mark in the box by each one that applies to you (just click on the box by the risk factor).

If you are “Age 60+” and checked at least two (2) other risk factors, you should be screened, and you qualify for a free-of-charge screening at Stony Brook University Hospital.

Now, to complete this form, please provide your name, date of birth, phone number, zip code, and email address, then click the SUBMIT button at the bottom of this page to schedule your screening.

We will contact you soon to make the necessary arrangements.

This community service vascular screening program is provided by the Stony Brook Vascular Surgery Division, and is directed by its AAA specialists, Apostolos K. Tassiopoulos, MD, chief of vascular surgery, and Shang A. Loh, MD.
