Request : Ultrasound: Right lower quadrant

History : Right lower quadrant pain r/o appendicitis


Finding : A retrocecal appendix is present, and markedly enlarged to a diameter of 4.5 mm. There is a central area of decreased echogenicity, possibly representing fluid within the appendix, and there is a somewhat eccentrically placed fluid collection near the appendiceal tip which may represent a very early perforation. There is inflammation of peri-appendiceal fat and a marked increase in blood flow seen on Doppler imaging.

Finding : The liver, spleen, kidneys, gallbladder, and pancreas are normal.

Finding : Thickening of appendix with surrounding inflammation consistent with appendicitis.

Best illustration of finding : Image Ultrasound Image Storage (SOP Instance UID: 1.2.840.113680.3.103.775.2873347909.282313.2)
