Name the Diagnosis

This is a “Name the Diagnosis” for a 14-year-old male adolescent who presented with periumbilical pain. On ultrasound, he was noted to have intussusception. Because of his age, further imaging was performed to determine the lead point for his intussusception. During surgery, he was found to have a Meckel's diverticulum, which was acting as the lead point.
