Abstract

To evaluate multi-detector CT (MDCT) findings in bowel and mesenteric injury due to blunt abdominal trauma. Retrospective evaluation of MDCT scan reports of patients admitted in Hamad Medical Corporation, Doha, Qatar with bowel and mesenteric injury during the period of January 2005 to April 2008. MDCT, without using oral contrast, clearly demonstrated various specific and less specific findings of bowel and mesenteric injury. Multi-detector CT is an excellent diagnostic modality in bowel and mesenteric injury. Routine administration of oral contrast agent is not mandatory for initial evaluation of these patients.
