The Acute Abdomen, Chapter 6, Selected From Essential Radiology: Clinical Presentation, Pathophysiology, Imaging, 3e, Richard B. Gunderman, 2014Source: Gunderman R, ed. Essential Radiology. Clinical Presentation, Pathophysiology, Imaging.. 3rd Edition. Thieme; 2014. doi:10.1055/b-002-92682Comment: Acute abdominal pain is one of the three or four most common complaints of patients presenting to emergency rooms and admitted to hospitals. The goal of this chapter is not to provide a comprehensive review of this complex topic, but to present a general imaging approach to the problem and to discuss seven of the most frequently encountered and illustrative etiologies. The single most common etiology of acute abdominal pain is functional and has no specific therapy; however, other conditions do warrant urgent medical or surgical therapy. These include peptic ulcer disease, cholecystitis, pancreatitis, intestinal obstruction, appendicitis, diverticulitis, urinary tract infection, and diseases of the female reproductive tract. Before discussing these entities, let us briefly examine several important radiographic findings that may be present in patients presenting with an acute abdomen.
