Click 49 year old male with cocaine induced mesenteric ischemia at the time of initial presentation (Technique: Toshiba Aquilion 32 slice, 106 mAs, 120 kVp, 3 mm axial slices, 120 cc of Optiray 350 contrast in portal venous phase). Images demonstrate free fluid in the perihepatic space and mesenteric free fluid adjacent to the small bowel. The small bowel demonstrates mural thickening, mucosal enhancement and multiple air fluid levels. Dilated loops of small bowel measuring up to 3.4 cm and mesenteric vascular congestion are also present.

Images demonstrate free fluid in the perihepatic space and mesenteric free fluid adjacent to the small bowel. The small bowel demonstrates mural thickening, mucosal enhancement and multiple air fluid levels. Dilated loops of small bowel measuring up to 3.4 cm and mesenteric vascular congestion are also present.

Click 49 year old male with resolved imaging findings of cocaine enteropathy (Toshiba Aquilion 32 slice, 121 mAs, 120 kVp, 3 mm axial slices, 120 cc of Optiray 350 contrast in portal venous phase, 900 cc of Readi-CAT given 2 hours prior to image acquisition). Images demonstrate near resolution of all of the imaging findings. Specifically, the free fluid, small bowel dilatation, mucosal enhancement, and mural thickening were resolved.
