Hello and welcome to Health Care Magic

The CT report suggets that the abdominal pain is due to some malpositioning of the small intestinal loops. This malpositioning has resulted in congestion of the mucosa of the large intestine in the splenic flexure, descending colon and sigmoid colon. All these structures are various parts of the large intestine.
A cause has to be sought out for the malpositioning.

Thr bilateral cortical scarring indicates that there is some abnormality in the kidney functions, reflux of urine back from the urinary bladder to the kidney.
This leads to scarring in the kidney.

You need to consult a gastrosurgeon and urologist for the abdominal pain and for the kidney problem respectively.

Thanks and take care
