Recently, CT has become the imaging test of choice for the diagnosis of appendicitis. Sensitivity and specificity range from 94% to 98% based on findings of a thickened appendix with some degree of adjacent inflammation.  The main CT criteria for acute appendicitis are periappendiceal inflammatory changes, an appendix with a diameter of more than 6 mm, or a wall thickness of more than 3 mm.
