Summary

An acute abdomen is an urgent condition requiring rapid diagnosis and treatment. Nowadays, with the new developments and progression in ultrasonography (US) and computed tomography (CT), these methods have become a far better alternative to plain abdominal radiography. US is now an available and proven method used to provide a “final” diagnosis in various conditions. The frequency for CT examination for the diagnosis of acute abdomen has increased. A disadvantage of using CT examination includes high doses of radiation for the patient. Fortunately, this disadvantage is outweighed by the multitude of advantages. The advantages include high sensitivity and specificity in the detection of causes in urgent conditions. The CT protocol of examination is primarily lead by the radiologist.
