Probably not: The findings you describe are not uncommon, and are non-specific. Some radiologists will use the term mesenteric panniculitis or lymphadenitis (inflammation of the mesenteric fat or lymph nodes) to give it a diagnosis. Early work on this finding associated it with abdominal lymphoma, but that didn't hold up over time. I would need to see the actual images to point to one diagnosis vs. another.

The short story...: Xrays are images obtained by passing a beam through a detector to simply generate and image of which xrays did or didn't hit the detector. Ct uses the same technology but reconstructs multiple imaging points using a computational algorthim to make a much more detailed picture in the form of "slices" mri uses magnetic fields and radio waves to generate and image using computers to create images.
