Abstract

OBJECTIVE. The purpose of our study was to review the wide spectrum of pertinent CT findings in patients with acute nontraumatic abdominal pain in the setting of atrial fibrillation. CONCLUSION. Underlying embolic or hemorrhagic complications are common in patients with acute nontraumatic abdominal pain in the setting of atrial fibrillation and can be accurately seen on CT.
