Abstract

For the diagnosis of a diverticular disease a sectional imaging method should be performed. First choice should be a "qualified ultrasound examination" followed by CT in uncertain situations or complicated disease. Disease classification should be done according the new CCD (Classification of diverticular disease) algorithm. Based on this new CCD patients can be stratified into outpatient, in-house patient and surgical treatment therapy.
