Conclusion

The tomography is the gold standard in the diagnosis of appendiceal disease. It allows to identify the position of the appendix and the results of this study suggests it can also help defining the severity of the disease by establishing the different grades in a non-invasive way, providing valuable data to surgeons for a better therapeutic approach that can be traduced in a shorter time of action and even in lower rate of complications.
