In brief: Mucosal thickening

Mucosa is the lining of the inner lumen of the bowel.
The duodenum and jejunum are the first two segments of the small bowel. Thickening of these tissues can occur with a variety of conditions. It is not clear from you question if this was seen on ct or you plan to have a ct to "verify" its presence. Generally this may be followed up by endoscopy, referred to as egd. See a gastroenterologist.
