Contrast enema and colonoscopy are common diagnostic tests for diverticular disease. CT scan is the imaging modality of choice for acute diverticulitis. ◊ ◊ Treatment includes bowel rest, antibiotics, and surgical intervention. ◊ Complications include bleeding, segmental colitis, perforation, abscess, fistulas, and obstruction. ◊ Acute bleeding managed by IV fluids or blood transfusion, and radiologically directed haemostasis (embolisation). http://bestpractice.bmj.com/best-practice/monograph-pdf/16.pdfen_US
