  1. What is the clinical utility of abdominal aortic aneurysm screening versus no screening in asymptomatic adults aged 50 years and older?
  2. What is the clinical utility of abdominal aortic aneurysm screening with different screening methods, approaches, or intervals in asymptomatic adults aged 50 years and older?



Key Message
