Figure 12: The mesentery containing the jejunum and ileum has a folded intestinal border about 40 times longer than its root (border – 6–7 m vs. root of the mesentery – 15 cm). In this image, the SMA is seen running parallel to the probe for a distance of about 7 cm. The mesenteric and the antimesenteric borders of the SMA can be identified. SMA: Superior mesenteric artery
