Answer

Several staging schemes have been proposed for diverticulitis based on the clinical findings, disease extent on imaging studies, and the presence of complications. The simplest method may be to differentiate among asymptomatic diverticulosis, uncomplicated diverticulitis, and complicated diverticulitis.
