Evaluation of Modified Alvarado Score and Ultrasonography for the Diagnosis of Acute Appendicitis

Money Gupta, Verinderjit Singh Virdi, Laxmi Agnihotri, Vishal Mandial

Acute appendicitis is one of the commonest surgical conditions. Diagnosis of this disease still remains a problem. Alvarado score is a clinical scoring system used to diagnose this. Modified Alvarado score alone has sensitivity of 95 % and Ultrasonography has 86 %. Combining both the modalities, sensitivity is 86 % but specificity is 100 %. Accuracy of positive diagnosis by Alvarado score alone was 71 % and by Ultrasound alone was 85 % in women. This increased to 92 % by combining both. Modified Alvarado score should be combined with Ultrasonography for the diagnosis of acute appendicitis.
