Abstract

Computed tomography (CT) is now commonly performed in patients with acute abdominal disorders. In some cases, CT can suggest specific diagnosis, whereas in others, corroborative imaging studies may be necessary to clarify an abnormality found on CT. In many instances, clinically unsuspected gastrointestinal pathology is identified in patients with nonspecific symptoms. This article presents an organized approach to the analysis of abdominal CT scans for signs of acute alimentary tract disease.
