The article presents information on abstracts related to radiology. An abstract determines if laparotomy based solely on the basis of initial clinical and radiological diagnosis is acceptable in current clinical practice. Data were audited on the last 100 consecutive emergency laparotomies performed at a district general hospital over a period of 14 months. Re-Look laparotomies for removal of packs were excluded. The initial clinical diagnosis at admission by a middle grade surgeon and a radiological assisted diagnosis carried out by a consultant radiologist were documented. These were then compared with the operative findings.
