Computed tomography (CT) appearances of small bowel malrotation and midgut volvulus (MGV) have rarely been described in paediatric patients. We present spiral CT images of a surgically proven case in a young infant. The literature on imaging techniques to diagnose these conditions is reviewed. Radiation doses of upper gastrointestinal series (UGI) and spiral CT are estimated and compared.

Normally, the duodenal–jejunal junction must be located to the left of the spine at about the level of the duodenal bulb in a position halfway between the lesser and ...
