Here are the documents for the JClub on 3/10/16. We discussed antibiotics vs appendectomy in treating uncomplicated appendicitis. We went over CT abdomen/pelvis. There isn’t too much of a system other than working through it in an anatomical fashion. Here are the associated with it.
For the statistical component, we discussed what non-inferiority studies are. I didn’t make a handout for it. Sorry. Let me know if you have questions about the concept of the design.

- CT Abdomen_Pelvis. There are a couple links in the handout that are nice to help guide you through a CT as well as some cases.
