Intussusception. Issues and controversies related to diagnosis and reduction.

Author information

  • 1Department of Diagnostic Imaging, University of Toronto, Hospital for Sick Children, Ontario, Canada.


Diagnosis and management of intussusception remain controversial. The authors discuss the evolution of changes and advances in practice and procedures. They advocate sonographic diagnosis and air enema reduction; the abdominal radiograph is reserved for children with clinical evidence of peritonitis and suspected perforation, if clinical findings are unusual, or if the sonographic examination is equivocal.
