High positive predictive value of MASS means a score of 7 or more of MASS strongly suggests acute appendicitis and negative predictive value shows that MASS less than 7 is in favor of absence of acute appendicitis in most of the patients, this group of patients can be observed for some time, reassessed, further investigated and then can be operated upon or discharged.
