This article reviews the computed tomography (CT) findings of miscellaneous regional and diffuse small bowel disorders. CT technique and potential pitfalls are discussed. Several categories of regional and diffuse small bowel conditions are reviewed, with representative CT images. These disorders often have relatively nonspecific CT appearances, and correlation with the history, clinical, and laboratory findings in each specific case is critical. In selected conditions, the CT findings are highly specific. The imaging literature of some of the common as well as some of the less common entities is reviewed, and clues to narrowing the differential diagnosis are provided.
