By IRENE L. on 17. February 2019 for Diverticulitis: Management

Very useful, practical I've met a pt of diverticulitis but was mis-diagnosed as appendicitis

better choice of images please
By Pedro C. on 08. December 2018 for Lower Gastrointestinal (GI) Bleeding: Examination & Diagnosis

please try to use the appropriate images, the angiography shown is not from the mesenteries

By Ginger T. on 30. October 2018 for The Acute Abdomen – General Principles

Very simple and straightforward. Excellent use of the films to show each case - best example I've seen thus far. I always struggle with the radiology terms used in materials, especially if the accompanying graphic isn't clear.
