Objective: To evaluate the clinical significance of spiral CT in adult intussusception. Methods: Spiral CT were performed in 12 cases of adult intussusception. The CT features and location were analyzed. Results: Twelve cases with 12 foci of intussusception were reported. All cases were secondary to primary pathology. Among them, lipoma 2 cases, adenomatous polyp 3 cases, carcinoma of colon 2 cases, diverticulum 1 case, lymphoma 1 case, angioma 1 case, chronic appendicitis 1 case, leiomyoma 1 case. The type of intussusception: small intestine-small intestine 5 cases, ileum-ileum-colon ascendens 1 case, ileum-colon ascendens 3 cases, colon-colon 3 cases. Masses were found in all of the 12 cases, including layering target masses 4 cases, kidney shape masses 8 cases, anomaly masses 5 cases, "Comet-tail" signs 8 cases. Conclusion: Adult intussusception has classic CT features, spiral CT can improve diagnostic ability of intussusception in adult, provide reliable imaging information for selecting treatment plan, has important clinical significance.
