    Upper abdomen we notice extensive ascites and excretion of CM in the pelvicalyceal system bilaterally.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: abdominal ct scan;

    At the level of duodenum junction dilatation of the third part of the duodenum, mild mucosal edema at the junction and formless rigid loop on the left are observed.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: abdominal ct scan;

    Lower abdomen; abnormal bowel loops are shown with effacement of the mucosal pattern.

15 minutes after contrast ingestion reveals CM in both pelvicalyceal systems and ureters. Abnormal small bowel loops, segmentally dilated are noted at the upper and mid-left abdomen with gradual progression to more normal-appearing loops on the right. Notice thickening of the mucosal folds causing scalloping of the bowel contour in the affected area.
