Abstract

With no one generally accepted approach to evaluate patients with suspected small-bowel obstruction (SBO), standard CT has emerged as the preeminent imaging modality and should be considered in the initial evaluation of patients with suspected high-grade SBO. Playing less significant roles in the diagnosis of acute SBO are barium enemas and the small-bowel examination.
