Small bowel obstruction is seen extending until the ileocecal valve. A blind structure originating from the terminal ileum is identified, with slight wall thickening. However, not much fat stranding is seen near this structure, which could be a Meckel diverticulum. Moderate pelvic ascites is seen.
Coronal view confirms a Meckel diverticulum.
