To assess the additional value of multiplanar reformations (MPR) in comparison with axial images alone for location of the transition zone in CT of mechanical small-bowel obstruction (SBO). Sixty-nine consecutive patients with mechanical SBO underwent 16-slice multi detector row CT (MDCT). The gold standard for the precise location of the transition zone was established by two experienced abdominal radiologists, unblinded to clinical and surgical reports, reviewing all CT examinations.
