RADIOLOGY: GASTROINTESTINAL: GI: Case# 32774: APPENDICITIS. Periumbilical pain radiating to the right lower quadrant. 1) Findings consistent with retrocecal appendicitis without gross perforation. It should be noted that following the CT the patient was brought to ultrasound where the appendix was easily visualized. It was theorized that a significant amount of inflammation has occurred in the past 24 hours since the prior study thus making it more easily visible. Findings on ultrasound were consistent with appendicitis without gross evidence of perforation. 2) Enlarged right ovary as described in the prior ultrasound report.
