We present four cases of profuse gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding where the site of haemorrhage was demonstrated using multi-slice computed tomography (MSCT), with concordant findings at laparotomy and pathological examination. A review of the current literature is undertaken and the role of spiral computed tomography as a method of sourcing the bleeding point is discussed in relation to other management modalities.
