Total number of cases studied were 100 and controls were 50 and this includes both out patients attending the Department of Surgery, CAIMS, Karimnagar.

More than 63% of cases occurred in 2nd and 3rd decade and males were more affected than females Commonest US feature was target sign and commonest position of appendix was retro caecal appendix. False negatives were 3, false positive was 1. Sensitivity of our study was 96.20% and specificity of study was 95.23%. Positive predictive value was 98.70% and Negative predictive value was 86.95%. P-value of our study was 0.0001. Ultrasonography should be the primary imaging procedure for patients suspected to have acute appendicitis.
