Example text

Barium swallow (a) and enhanced-CT image (b) of two patients with achalasia shows the classical “mouse-tail” appearance in patient (a) (arrowhead), and prestenotic dilatation with fluid residual in patient (b) (arrow) Signs on CT ¼ Hiatus hernia is demonstrated by the stomach fundus or body lying within the posterior mediastinum (Fig. 11). ¼ Morgagni hernia is seen as stomach or bowel within the anterior/inferior mediastinum, whereas Bockdaleck’s hernia is seen as stomach or bowel within the posterior/inferior mediastinum.

Coomb sign (perienteric hypervascularity): this sign is characterized by increased number of dilated mesenteric vessels around a thick bowel loop with intramural target sign (Fig. 9). ¼ Abscess formation: formation of an abscess commonly seen in patients with intestinal fistulas, where the bacterial flora start to invade the sterile peritoneal organs. Abscess is seen as a soft-tissue density lesion with thick wall, and typical uniform ring enhancement after contrast injection. Air within the lesion is not a common sign but pathognomonic, reflecting gas-producing organism proliferation within the abscess.

Stroke is evaluated on unenhanced CT, CT-angiography, and CT perfusion study. Hemorrhagic infarction is usually caused by hypertension or embolic occlusion. Hemorrhagic infarctions arise due to two mechanisms: ¼ Venous thrombosis: the high flowing arterial blood is obstructed by a blocked vein, which raises the intracapillary pressure causing them to rupture and bleed. ¼ Arterial embolism: the embolus blocks the artery, and in some times a small hole develops within the embolus making blood gush into the capillaries with high speed and pressure, causing them to rupture and bleed.
