Figure 5 Contrast extravasation demonstrating location of lower gastrointestinal bleeding. A: Superior mesenteric artery arteriogram shows an amorphous contrast collection (black arrow) arising from the left branch (long black arrow) of the middle colic artery; B: Later in the arterial phase the collection has increased and is layering dependently in the colon, assuming the configuration of the haustra.
