Abstract

Mesenteric ischemia is a complex and devastating disease which still remains a diagnostic challenge to the clinicians due to non-specific clinical and laboratory findings. Several imaging features have been described with multidetector computed tomography which allows the diagnosis of mesenteric ischemia with high sensitivity and specificity. However, there are imaging features which overlap with other pathologies including benign inflammation and infection. Knowledge of imaging findings in mesenteric ischemia and its potential mimics is important in early and definitive diagnosis.
