If you have already been tested for it and don't have any aneurysms at the present time, I think that you should get the doctor's recommendation of how often to test for it based on your family history.  And you can always get a second opinion.  My brain aneurysm gets tested by an MRI every 2 years to check on its size.  At one point, one of the doctors ordered a CT Scan to further determine its size after the MRI first caught my brain aneurysm, but that has a terrible amount of radiation in it.  It's astronomical, so I would really press for the reason why an MRI can't be used instead to just check on whether you have any. Good luck.
