    Spiral angio-CT shows the presence of a huge calcified superior mesenteric arterial aneurysm
     

    Unenhanced CT scan shows a coarsely calcified superior mesenteric aneurysm.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Spiral angio-CT shows the presence of a huge calcified superior mesenteric arterial aneurysm;

    Enhanced CT scan demonstrates that the aneurysm is partially thrombosed and surrounded by fibrotic tissue reaction.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Spiral angio-CT shows the presence of a huge calcified superior mesenteric arterial aneurysm;

    Enhanced CT scan at a lower level depicts the concomitance of the superior mesenteric aneurysm and the abdominal aortic aneurysm.
