In brief: Ultrasound

Is the preferred method for screening for abdominal aortic aneurysm as it is less expensive and involves no ionizing radiation.
If aortic enlargement is seen, cta is usually chosen to determine most accurately degree of aortic enlargement, extent of aneurysm, and involvement of aortic branches.
