  • Figure 1
    An ultrasound scan of the abdomen

    An abdominal ultrasound scan showing a hyperechoic rim corresponding to a mass with distal shadowing, next to a dilated fluid filled small bowel loop. The picture did not change on doing consequent examinations.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Ultrasound of the abdomen;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    A CT scan of the abdomen
     

    A CT revealing a soft tissue mass mottled with gas, next to the dilated, contrast-filled small bowel loop.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: CT of the abdomen;

    The mass seems to be intraluminal, with the gastrointestinal contrast lining the right border of the mass.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: CT of the abdomen;
     
     
  • Figure 3
    Small bowel enteroclysis
     

    A barium study image of the small intestine showing a marked dilation of the small bowel loops, proximal to a filling defect measuring 6 cm x 7 cm approximately.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Small bowel enteroclysis;

    A close up X-ray film under compression showing the contrast lining the mass and the mottled appearance of the mass consistent with barium filling the interspaces.
