This is a case of jejunal intussusception in a child with abdominal pain (a case of gastroenteritis, pain was not much), Patient was scanned for good 15 minutes and it had reduced by then. Small bowel intussusceptions are incidentally detected, are without an identifiable pathological lead point, with a normal wall thickness, non-dilated proximal bowel and normal vascularity on color Doppler reduce spontaneously and are of no clinical significance. If not reduced till you finish the scan, follow up scan can b done after few hours.
