Abstract

The cystic or linear pattern of pneumatosis in children is not a useful CT sign to differentiate benign from clinically worrisome PI. CT findings that include soft-tissue thickening of the bowel wall, free fluid, periintestinal soft-tissue stranding, and the extent of PI can be useful in differentiating these entities.
