Overview

Duplex ultrasonograghy is often used for the evaluation of abdominal pain. However, in case of acute mesenteric ischemia its sensitivity is relatively reduced as compared to other radiological tests owing to its diagnostic limitation by the presence of air-filled distended bowel loops. Its primary clinical application is in the diagnosis of high grade arterial stenosis.

Mesenteric ischemia ultrasound

The use of duplex mesenteric ultrasonograghy is implemented commonly for the diagnosis of the following:[1][2][3]
