Acute abdominal pain is a common complaint, accounting for up to 10% of all visits to the emergency department (ED). The use of diagnostic imaging methods is only justified for a part of the patients. Around 52% of patients who report to the ED are eventually diagnosed with a non-urgent condition. Improving the accuracy of clinical diagnosis could produce added value by preventing overdiagnosis. Sarah Gans's research focuses on improving the diagnostic trajectory for adult patients with acute abdominal pain.
