Complications associated with abdominal surgery account for a significant number of requests for acute imaging in the daily practice of emergency radiology. As radiologists reporting these studies, it is very important to be familiar with the postoperative anatomy of the more frequent surgical procedures and their potential complications to help the clinicians in the decision for treatment with relaparotomy, interventional radiology or conservative management. Differentiation between the expected postsurgical changes from significant pathologies that might require intervention can be difficult. A close clinical correlation and dialogue with the surgeons is of the utmost importance for an accurate interpretation of the image findings.
In this webinar we will discuss the basics of postoperative abdominal imaging with an emphasis on CT: normal findings, most common complications and some management tips. Possible mimics and pitfalls will also be addressed.
1. Review the appropriate CT protocols.
2. Recognise some normal postoperative findings.
3. Become familiar with common acute complications in abdominal surgery, possible mimics and pitfalls.
4. Understand the clinical questions that need to be addressed in various settings to guide appropriate treatment.
