The management of the patients
with acute abdomen syndrome requires an accurate and rapid diagnostic.
Spiral CT is the investigation of choice in these cases because
it is rapid, cost-effective and provides a global perspective
of abdominal structures. Also, helical CT offers the possibility
to obtain thinner contiguous images and to perform coronal or
sagittal reconstruction, as well as the possibility to make
the acquisitions during the different vascular phases.
Abdominal emergencies -
MDCT - diverticulitis - appendicitis - obstruction - intestinal
