Background

Vascular lesions of the GI tract conform a heterogeneous group of abnormalities which are a potential cause of hemorrhage.  GI bleeding may range from mild or obscure bleeding to severe and life-threatening, especially in cases with an arterial origin.  

 

Multidetector CT angiography has a high diagnostic yield detecting vascular lesions. Besides, an adequate diagnosis is crucial to lead the optimal therapeutic approach (direct endoscopic, angiographic embolization or surgery).
