1st FAST project management meeting held

The Female Aneurysm Screening Study has now started and many women have already undergone screening for an abdominal aortic aneurysm across Leicester and Leicestershire. Also, our study team held their first project management meeting before Christmas, attended by one of our patients. The study is currently running smoothly and we hope that more women will participate in the near future to help us reach our recruitment targets and make our research meaningful. Please do get in touch if you want to take part via email or telephone. You will find all relevant information on the FAST website.

Study has commenced!

On November the 10th we held our first "mock" screening event in Leicester, where we invited some women to attend for an ultrasound of their aorta. It well went well and we've fine-tuned the last few details so that we can fully open the "Female Aneurysm Screening Study" for recruitment and abdominal aortic aneurysm screening. We will be keeping you up to date with information about aneurysms, screening in women and the study progress. Feel free to browse the website for further information on FAST, the study team and aneurysms.
