Acute mesenteric ischemia (AMI) is a life-threatening condition that often presents with abdominal pain. Early diagnosis with contrast-enhanced computed tomography and revascularization can reduce the overall mortality in AMI. This article reviews practical etiological classification, pathophysiology of imaging manifestations and common pitfalls in intestinal ischemia.
