Working in the on-call section of Telemedicine Clinic exposes our on-call team members to a high concentration of acute abdominal pathologies. Whilst presentation of peritonitic patients can sometimes be atypical and challenging at presentation in the ER, the radiological assessment of the CT studies obtained in this group of patients can often be challenging as well.

Based upon experiences learned in our daily emergency work, a step-by-step assessment is proposed to facilitate radiology readings. In this programme participants are exposed to a wide variety of commonly and less commonly encountered acute bowel conditions.

As images say more than 1000 words, hands-on training and reporting teaching cases are by far the best way to further grow into the field. Feel challenged, and participate!

Learning objectives

  • To use a standardised approach to the assessment of the acute abdomen, specifically aimed at the assessment of the bowel in the on-call setting.
  • To obtain an extensive overview of bowel emergencies, including inflammatory (common and less common) conditions, obstruction, ischemia, acute presentation of malignancy and others.
  • To gain experience in step-by-step analysis of imaging features commonly encountered in the bowel, including (but not limited to) luminal width, wall thickness, density and enhancement. This in the ends facilitates the design of the differential diagnosis in most cases.
