The magnetic resonance appearance of extraperitoneal bowel perforation: a case report.

Abstract

The use of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for abdominal and gastrointestinal imaging has been quite limited, when compared to its utilization in other organ systems. We present an interesting case of extraperitoneal bowel perforation, which was diagnosed by magnetic resonance (MR). Extraperitoneal bowel perforation is frequently a confusing and difficult diagnosis to make. The multiplanar imaging capability and unique sensitivity of MR to fluid enabled a specific diagnosis to be made in this challenging case.
