I have seen pictures of an appendix through a scope however I'm not sure how far into they can go. Its not very big but its not very wide either. Risk of perforation would lead me to believe that they really don't check on it too much. Ultrasounds can be helpful in detecting appendicitis but are not 100% accurate (you can still have it but not show up on the images). A CT scan is also helpful.
I hope you are able to get answers soon. Given that your WBC count is up, you may want to follow up with another hospital or doctor.
