I just read this on the British (or is it English? This turned out to be an important distinction when I lived in Scotland!) Aortic Dissection Support Group site:
“In the UK, the NHS (National Health Service) have acted with great responsibility to set up a NATIONAL SCREENING program for all men in the UK 65 and over. The phased roll-out of the programme nationally began in 2009 with an anticipation by 2013 there will be around 42 local programmes that will cover the whole of England.”
Take a look at the site. They have done a great job!
Then, what about women, as they get AAA too! Doesn’t seem right! An actuarial decision based on the 4/1 ratio, men/women with AAA?
