Aortic Aneurysm - Diagnosis

​Doctors will conduct a thorough physical examination, such as checking for high blood pressure, heart murmurs, or any pulsating lumps in the abdomen, groin or legs. An aortic aneurysm can show no symptoms until it has grown so large that it bursts, or tears within its wall. Early detection and treatment enhances survival. If large enough, an aortic aneurysm in the abdomen can be detected by a clinical examination.

Investigative tests to help confirm the diagnosis of an aortic aneurysm may also be administered, including:
Ultrasound

These investigative tests may also be used to monitor the size of the aneurysm over time, to assess the risk of rupture and the timing of surgery.
