Kub Results Show Air Pockets In Small Intestine
Stool in small Intestine means obstruction?Ct shows intussusception & stool in small intestine ,stool seen in exploratory surgery,surgeon did nothing
The gastrointestinal tract starts at the mouth, travel down the tunnel (esophagus), which connects to the stomach, which then empties into the duodenum, jejunum, and ileum---the three parts of the small intestine (@25 feet).

Colonoscopy showed extrinsic compression in the cecum not visible on cat scan result said mass effect in cecum from feces?
If there: was a mass next to the cecum causing extrinsic mass effect on the colonoscopy, the CT should be able to show it easily. If there was no mass identified on the CT, there is probably nothing to worry about, but make sure the radiologist knows about the colonoscopy findings so special attention can be paid to that area. It sounds like the mass effect may be due to feces in an adjacent bowel loop? ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If CT shows perforated bowel , multiple air pockets, abscess's and large fluid collection in pelvic area, Can the CT be wrong ?
Can CT show images of perforated bowel abscesses large fluid collection with an air level, and be WRONG????
Unlikely: It is unlikely that a CT would be wrong. It is a very good test for assessing abscesses and an air/fluid level is an excellent indication of perforated bowel. It could however have been read incorrectly but most radiologists are expert in reading CT scans. You should ask for a second radiologist to read the CT if you suspect an error. ...Read more
What does ct scan results mean?
large amount of colonic stool
confirm moderate amount of free peritoneal air as well as air in the anterior wall and the retro peritoneum.
The study was with IV contrast only.
Prob not good.: The large amount of stool in the colon is not necessarily abnormal BUT, air in the abdomen means the bowel has had a leakage OR it is post surgery. cannot say in your particular case, but generally, if there isnt surgery, a burst bowel is often fatal. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Ctscan : ovoid water attenuation struture in luq located between small bowel loops and the splenic flexure. Any ideas? Worried, i see GI in 1 week
Plz See Surgeon: This sounds like a cyst within the mesentery of the intestine, yet, this is but one small piece of the puzzle: what size is it, is it causing compression of any adjacent organs, is it causing symptoms, etc. In general, we have 3 options: leave it alone, remove it, or stick a needle in it. This decision is best made with a surgeon rather than a GI doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can "mild colitis' found on colonscopy biopsy cause small nodes or fat deposits in abdominal ct scan? MRCP & EUS normal. I'm worried, Blood normal.
Maybe lymph nodes: colitis doesn't cause fat. I can cause lymph nodes to enlarge. LN enlargement is not abnormal if there is adjacent inflammation. With all other things being OK, I would not worry. If you are, ask your doctor to do follow up scans. Try to avoid CT due to the added radiation. ...Read more
