The term “ultrasound screening for abdominal aortic aneurysm” means the following services furnished to an asymptomatic individual for the early detection of an abdominal aortic aneurysm—
(1) a procedure using sound waves (or such other procedures using alternative technologies, of commensurate accuracy and cost, as specified by the Secretary of Health and Human Services, through the national coverage determination process) provided for the early detection of abdominal aortic aneurysms; and
(2) includes a physician's interpretation of the results of the procedure.
