Abstract

Fluoro/radiographic contrast examination of the small bowel (SB) and its cross-sectional hybrid (computed tomographic enteroclysis) have evolved into important consultative tools in formulating a more confident management course in the treatment of SB disease. The low incidence of SB diseases and their nonspecific clinical presentation require the proven performance characteristics of enteral volume-challenged examination to shorten the lag time of diagnosis or exclude its presence. Reliable exclusion of a SB abnormality is an important diagnosis for radiologists to make in the work-up of the patient with persistent unexplained abdominal symptoms.
