Radiology of the small intestine

Academic Article

Abstract

  • Practicing gastroenterologists rely more heavily on radiologic methods for assessment of the small intestine than for assessment of any other segment of the gut. Interest in small-bowel radiology is high and has stimulated a number of interesting studies in the past year. The debate continues on whether the small-bowel enema (enteroclysis) should replace the oral small-bowel follow-through examination as the primary investigation of choice. Computed tomography is playing an ever larger diagnostic role in the small bowel. Vascular disease and infiltrating and inflammatory diseases have also received much recent attention.
