Abstract

Prompt diagnosis of acute mesenteric ischemia is a dilemma which is unfortunately generally made at the irreversible phase of intestinal damage. Besides conventional diagnostic imaging modalities contrast enhanced multidetector computed tomography angiography enables fast and detailed evaluation of the mesenteric circulation and abdominal viscera which provides accurate and rapid diagnosis in the emergency room.
