The appendix is abnormally distended to 10 mm and demonstrates mural thickening with surrounding stranding in keeping with acute appendicitis.
Prominent regional ileocolic lymph nodes are identified, measuring up to 9 x 7 mm.
With the exception of the mild stranding around the appendix, there is no free intraperitoneal fluid. No pneumoperitoneum.
No discrete collection.

Otherwise the liver, spleen, adrenals, kidneys and pancreas are normal.
The lung bases are clear.
