Guideline for the Diagnostic Pathway in Patients with Acute Abdominal Pain
CT of the abdomen and pelvis is the first-line investigation for many presentations of acute abdominal pain. Traditionally, the plain abdominal radiograph was the initial investigation but has fallen out of favor due to its poor sensitivity and specificity for many of the causes of abdominal pain. Historically the plain abdominal radiograph was mandatory in every patient presenting with an acute abdomen.
In the pre-CT era, patients with an acute abdomen were often sent for urgent surgery. Contemporaneously, with the virtually ubiquitous availability of CT, some of these patients will not be operated on at all. Conversely, some patients who do not meet the traditional criteria for an "acute abdomen" will be diagnosed on imaging with conditions, such as acute appendicitis, and be sent for surgery.
