INFORMATION ABOUT THE SCAN:-
The aorta is the main blood vessel that supplies blood to your body. In some men, aged 65 and above, the wall of the aorta in the abdomen can become weak and start to expand and form what is called an abdominal aortic aneurysm. A simple test called an ultrasound scan will identify if there is an aneurysm. This can be done at a number of GP surgeries and community hospital locations across Wiltshire and Dorset. If you are interested please contact the Dorset and Wiltshire Screening programme on the details above to book an appointment and discuss any queries that you may have.
Please note that if you are male and under the age of 65 you will automatically be invited for a scan during the year that you turn 65.
