Special news: pARC now available on MDcalc
In our pediatric abdominal pain study, we aimed to develop and validate a new pediatric Appendicitis Risk Calculator (pARC), quantifying risk for appendicitis on a continuous scale. Using rigorous methodology for score development and allowing for complex calculations, we aimed for the pARC to have improved accuracy and clinical use over the Pediatric Appendicitis Score. Our calculator is now available on MDcalc.
