Aims and objectives

Primary small bowel tumors are rare, account for 3-5% of all gastrointestinal tumors and have been estimated to be 1 per 100,000 people [1-4]. Because of the rarity and the variaty of histological subtypes, small bowel neoplasm has been less studied than the rest of gastrointestinal tract.

It is often diagnosed in late-stage due to clinical features are nonspecific or asymptomatic until some complications develop. The small intestine has been difficult to be approached for investigation. Most of the cases are diagnosed mainly based on imaging examinations in stead of histologic evidence. Multiple detector computed tomography (MDCT) has been the most important modality in evaluating and staging small bowel neoplasms [5].

Few research about small bowel imaging is just describing the imaging features of each histological subtype but not comparing it to others [6-10]. The purpose of this study was to analyze the ability of MDCT in differentiating the primary small bowel neoplasms.
