Contrasts: when do we order them?!
G'day Scott/Mel, great talk. Have you any references for the studies mentioned in this talk? The written summary doesnt mention which studies were used.CheersMatt

Here is a good review with references to the major papers up until the last few year.. DIAGNOSTIC ACCURACY OF NONCONTRAST COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY FOR APPENDICITIS IN ADULTS: A SYSTEMATIC REVIEW Hlibczuk, V., et al, Ann Emerg Med 55(1):51, January 2010
