Patients with rectal pathologies may have acute symptoms that can either be similar or indistinctive from other abdominal emergencies. Due to this overlap of manifestations, CT may play both primary and complementary roles in evaluating these pathologies.


An early diagnose plays a crucial role in avoiding dreaded complications, therefore it is important for the radiologists to recognize the imaging signs, so they are able to correlate the findings in order to make an accurate diagnose and to identify the associated aggravations.
