What is the gold standard imaging exam to diagnose a AAA?
CTA of the Aorta is the gold standard, but it exposes the patient to large amounts of radiation. Ultrasound is helpful with screening, diagnosis and follow up without radiation exposure and at a reduced cost point.

Why are you NOT supposed to hit the brakes when you hit a patch of ice while driving?
If you slam on the brakes, you have a greater chance of locking your brakes up, resulting in the kinetic friction will be higher than the static friction. Static friction exists if the wheels keep rolling on the ice without locking up. If the kinetic friction gets higher than the static friction as a result of the brakes locking up, there will be relative slipping between the wheel and the ice...which reduces the braking force so it takes the car longer to stop.
