Figure 2: Contrast-enhanced multidetector computed tomography. Coronal reformatted (a) and axial (b, d in craniocaudal order) images show marked (up to 2 cm) mural thickening of entire right colon (arrowheads in a, b, and c) with a stratified appearance ("target" sign) including enhancing mucosa and hypoattenuating submucosa. Associated findings indicating acute colitis include pericolonic fat inflammatory changes, minimal parietocolic and pelvic peritoneal effusion (*).
