5. Abdominal X-ray. Free retroperitoneal air (arrow) 5 Abdominal Imaging Gas Within the Bowel  Abnormal gaseous distension/dilatation of small bowel loops, with or without fluid levels, implies a small bowel process – be it obstructive (small bowel obstruction, > Chap. 21), paralytic (ileus, > Chap. 43) or inflammatory (Crohn’s disease, > Chap. 24). Remember – acute gastroenteritis may produce small bowel fluid levels; the diarrhea hints at the diagnosis.  Abnormal gaseous distention/dilatation of the colon denotes colonic obstruction or volvulus (> Chap.

Normally, the wall of the gallbladder is thin (about 2–3 mm). A distended gallbladder, thickened wall, a peri-cholecystic layer of fluid, a “halo” sign and intramural air are strong indications of cholecystitis (> Fig. 19). Spleen Notice the size and form of the organ. Is there homogeneous enhancement? Important diagnoses include traumatic or spontaneous rupture with lack of contrast and fluid around the spleen, and infarct of the spleen with a hypoperfused wedge-like area. Pancreas The position of this organ is from the hilum of the spleen (cauda pancreatici), in front of the contrast-enhanced splenic artery and vein and superior mesenteric Fig.

Unfortunately, too many times these patients spend several hours in the ER, waiting for the results of non-relevant blood tests and progressing slowly along the imaging path from AXRs, which are usually non-diagnostic, to US, which shows the aneurysm but usually cannot diagnose a rupture, to a long wait for unnecessary contrast material to fill the bowel in preparation for a “technically perfect” CT scan. The tragic consequence of these delays is a dramatic hemodynamic collapse either before or during an abdominal CT scan.
