Vascular changes due to fight have a district location and appear only when the intramural venous circulation significantly slows down. The origin of this event is multifactorial and unpredictable. The main factors are: - the obstructive mechanism, occlusion duration and onset of complex mechanisms; - the mesenteric and enteric circulation, already uncertain due to diffuse atherosclerotic disease; - the pathological remains, which alter the abdominal habitat; - the patient’s age and general status.

To date, contrast-enhanced multidetector CT (MDCT) has become the gold standard in the evaluation of small-bowel obstruction (SBO). Examination Technique In suspected SBO, MDCT can be used both as first imaging modality and for integrative study. For obvious radiation-dose-related issues, the CT technique varies in these two situations: CT as first-imaging modality: includes scout views (frontal and lateral) and a scan before and after intravenous (IV) contrast material CT for integrative study: includes a frontal scout view and a scan after IV contrast material In our practice, in patients with SBO, MDCT is not performed with oral and/or rectal contrast agents.
