Usefulness of multidetector-row CT (MDCT) for the diagnosis of non-occlusive mesenteric ischemia (NOMI): assessment of morphology and diameter of the superior mesenteric artery (SMA) on multi-planar reconstructed (MPR) images.
Two trunks arose separately from a very short CMT: 1) the gastro-splenic trunk divided into the left gastric artery and the splenic artery; and 2) the hepatomesenteric trunk divided into the common hepatic artery and the superior mesenteric artery.
However, his abdominal computed tomography with intravenous contrast revealed dilatation in the small intestines, a small amount of fluid in the abdomen, mesenteric torsion, and sudden cut of flow in the superior mesenteric artery (SMA) related to torsion.
At the level of the last axial cross-section of the initial cardiac acquisition, just below the emerging of superior mesenteric artery (SMA), we saw an important parietal thrombosis of the abdominal aorta.
Measurement of the length of the coeliac trunk up to the left gastric, Measurement of the length of coeliac trunk up to common hepatic and/or splenic artery, Measurement of coeliac trunk diameter, Distance between coeliac trunk and the superior mesenteric artery shows in Table 1 (Figure 1 & 2).
