A 68 y/o male with acute SMV thrombosis demonstrates varying degrees of bowel ischemia within the abdomen. a, b There is increased mucosal enhancement (target pattern) with mural thickening in ileal loops signaling early-stage mucosal ischemia. c, d Mural thickening and hypo-enhancement are depicted in another ileal segment proximally suggestive of intermediate stage ischemia. eg A short ileal segment shows mural thinning, perforation and pneumatosis due to late stage of transmural necrosis associated with pneumoperitoneum (thin arrows in b)
