No bowel obstruction.
Barium retained in colonic diverticulosis, largely in the descending and sigmoid colon.
Retained barium is occasionally observed many years down the line on plain radiography or CT.
However, this is less common now, due to its much more limited use in contemporary radiology.
This cases illustrates pretty florid diverticulosis nicely.
