Abstract

Enteroclysis is a double contrast study of the small bowel. This procedure allows the radiologist to evaluate the small bowel for disease processes including Crohn's disease, Meckel's diverticulum, and malabsorption diseases--all disease processes sometimes missed through single contrast SBFT. Through the use of enteroclysis, the radiologist can detect mucosal fold pattern changes, ulceration of the lumen, dilation of the loops, and intussusception, which can cause an obstruction. Even though the procedure is costly and time consuming, it provides a more accurate evaluation of the small bowel.
