Abdominal radiology: conditions (curriculum)

Dr Craig Hacking and Dr Jeremy Jones et al.
This is a basic article for medical students and other non-radiologists

Abdominal radiology conditions are a broad group of heterogeneous conditions that are split into:

  • true pathology (e.g. colonic carcinoma)
  • the underlying process (e.g. large bowel obstruction)

It is important to have an overview of these conditions and understand what imaging is useful in their diagnosis and further management.
