Acute Abdomen (Clinical)

Introduction

Acute abdominal pain is a common complaint in patients presenting to the Emergency Department. Because clinico-biological evaluation may be inaccurate, Imaging studies play a major role in the diagnosis and in the treatment management of patients with acute abdominal pain.

Aims

The aims of the workshop are to discuss the different imaging strategies and to provide a comprehensive coverage of the most frequent pathological conditions that can present with acute abdominal pain.
The format of the workshop will include formal lectures that have been assigned to expert colleagues, able to thoroughly discuss each topic. Moreover, an interactive discussion on real clinical cases will be led - in additional “slots” - by the faculty members who will help to discuss imaging strategies and to illustrate the state-of-the-art in the diagnosis of acute abdominal conditions including “challenging cases”. Finally, specific and multidisciplinary sessions will allow the audience to “ask the experts” questions in a direct way.

Target group
