Recognition of neoplastic and nonneoplastic pathologies resulting in mesenteric masses aids the clinician in identifying and managing these diseases. MRI with its superior soft tissue characterization and multiplanar abilities is an excellent diagnostic tool for mesenteric mass identification, characterization, and staging. MRI also assists in differentiating neoplastic and non-neoplastic lesions thereby facilitating appropriate prediction of histological composition and guiding management.
