Ultrasound will detect its presence but catscan is needed to evaluate the anatomy better as to need for therapy and choice of treatment modalities, whether endovascular vs.
Open repair, or no treatment at all but observation/follow-up.

An ultrasound can diagnose an abdominal aortic aneurysm.
However, looking at the aorta would have to be part of the study protocol. An ultrasound ordered to look at the gallbladder, ie in the abdomen, might never look at the aorta.
