There is a thickened loop of jejunum with moderate degree of fat stranding affecting the associated mesentery. Small outpouchings are demonstrated arising from the mesenteric border of the jejunum, compatible with small bowel diverticulosis. Several of these are centred in the region of fat stranding. Two gas locules are on the space from adjacent small bowel. While the larger of these could still represent a diverticulum with intervening wall thickening, the smaller locule is favoured to represent extraluminal gas.
Incidental findings include colonic diverticulosis, cortical scarring in the upper pole of the right kidney, small hiatus hernia and atelectasis at the lung bases.
