    Abstract:

    Graded compression sonography has gained widespread acceptance as a useful technique to evaluate patients with atypical signs and symptoms of appendicitis. When positive, early surgery can be performed prior to perforation. When there is no sonographic evidence of appendicitis, other alternative diagnoses may be established. CT scans and the contrast enema remain the primary imaging modalities to evaluate suspected diverticulitis; however, sonography may be useful in selected patients with an atypical clinical presentation.
