Introduction- The present study was conducted to determine the cases of mesenteric ischemia with Multi-detector cone beam tomography. Materials & Methods: 46 cases of mesenteric ischemia underwent MDCT examination after explaining the procedure to the patients using 128 detector rows Siemens definition AS scanner. Results- MDCT shows SMA dissection in 14 patients, bowel wall thickening in 31, bowel distention in 10 and pneumatosis in 5 cases. The difference was significant (P<0.05). 25 cases were acute and 21 were chronic. The difference was non- significant (P< 0.05). Conclusion- Multi-detector CT is the most sensitive and specific diagnostic tool for AMI and should be used as the first-line imaging modality when AMI is suspected.
Key words- Mesenteric ischaemia, MDCT, AS scanner.
