What is the code for the AAA one time Medicare screening exam?  What are appropriate indications, or is it just done as part of Medicare enrollment? 

What type of protocol do most people follow for this, full aorta duplex or just prox mid distal measurements? 

I suddenly have a cardiologist gone wild over these and have 10 ordered in the next few days!
