MR imaging of acute appendicitis

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is highly accurate for the diagnosis of acute appendicitis. Lack of ionizing radiation and high contrast resolution makes MRI an attractive alternative to ultrasound and CT in pediatric and pregnant patients. This chapter discusses the literature supporting use of MRI in diagnosis of acute appendicitis, proper MRI technique essential for maximizing diagnostic accuracy, the MRI findings of acute appendicitis, and potential cases of false-positive and false-negative results.
