Objective To evaluate the value of CT and MRI for intussusception in adults.Methods The findings of computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging of 8 cases with the intussusception in adults were retrospectively analyzed.The diagnosis was proved by operation and pathology.Results Among 8 cases CT examination,there were eccentric parenchyma masses in colon. The masses appeared reniform or bifoliate shape in 4 cases, sausage shape in 3 cases and shuttlecock shape in 2 cases. The masses were obviously enhanced on contrast enhanced CT scan. MRI was obtained in 3 cases, which demonstrated eccentric parenchyma masses in colon. The mass appeared shuttlecock shape in 1 case. The masses were obviously enhanced after intravenous Gd-DTPA injection in 2 cases. Conclusions CT can diagnose intussusception in adults,but it can't indicates pathogeny. MRI can demonstrate valuable signs.
