Standard diagnostic exams include abdominal and pelvic (CT) scan with oral and IV contrast, (UGI), and, for equivocal cases, hypotonic duodenography. In addition, vascular imaging studies such as and contrast may be used to indicate increased bloodflow velocity through the SMA or a narrowed SMA angle. Despite multiple case reports, there has been controversy surrounding the diagnosis and even the existence of SMA syndrome since symptoms do not always correlate well with radiologic
