ABSTRACT

Background: The purpose of this study is to know the role of preoperative evaluation by USG and CT in managing surgical patients. The patients with acute abdominal pain may provide many problems in diagnosis and decision making, whether operative intervention is required. Method: The study was carried out in patients of Department of General Surgery in Krishna Hospital and Medical Research Centre, Karad in 2 years’ time period. We evaluated 200 patients with USG and 50 with CT scan. Results: We evaluated 200 patients with USG and the diagnosis was correct in 135. In cases of appendicitis and blunt trauma abdomen, USG has too low sensitivity. The diagnostic accuracy for Gall bladder diseases is high. Conclusion: Though USG and CT are helpful to the surgeon in managing the patients, clinical assessment is invaluable.
