Ischemic bowel disease

Radiol Clin North Am. 1993 Nov;31(6):1197-218.


The pathophysiologic events occurring in the ischemic process are described so that radiologic findings are understood rather than memorized. Depending on the underlying disease, the ischemic process can lead almost instantly to infarction or may be so indolent that years or even decades of low-grade ischemia may occur. The spectrum is discussed and illustrated.
