Despite an array of sophisticated imaging techniques, the barium examination remains a valuable diagnostic test for evaluating structural abnormalities of the small bowel. Most patients can be examined with conventional small-bowel follow-through studies, in which periodic imaging of the entire small bowel is performed by using fluoroscopic guidance; however, some patients may benefit from enteroclysis, in which contrast agents are instilled into the small bowel via a catheter placed in the… Expand
Small Bowel Imaging
The small bowel, affected by a host of pathologic conditions can be difficult and challenging to image because of its length and tortuous course. However the small bowel imaging is evolving. ThereExpand
Chapter 2 Small-bowel radiology – an introduction for gastroenterologists
The field of radiological small-bowel imaging is changing rapidly, as is small-bowel enteroscopy. New techniques allow the depiction of intraluminal, mural, and extraintestinal features of variousExpand
Small Bowel Infectious and Inflammatory Disease 35
TLDR
This chapter will deal in some detail with Crohn’s disease, more unusual inflammations of the small bowel, infections and infestations, plus the differential diagnosis of terminal ileitis will be included. Expand
Effectiveness of MR enterography for the assessment of small-bowel diseases beyond Crohn disease.
TLDR
Magnetic resonance enterography allows dynamic evaluations of small-bowel peristalsis and distensibility of areas of luminal narrowing and intraluminal masses by repeating sequences at different intervals after administering an additional amount of the oral contrast medium. Expand
Enteroscopy and its relationship to radiological small bowel imaging.
TLDR
For patients requiring repeated small bowel imaging, modalities that do not use ionizing radiation, such as ultrasound or magnetic resonance imaging, should be considered. Expand
Barium follow through in the assessment and follow-up of adult patients with short bowel syndrome*
Short bowel syndrome is defined as the small bowel functional absorptive surface inability to provide adequate nutrition, leading to intestinal failure and chronic malnutrition. In adult individualsExpand
Nonendoscopic Imaging Studies
TLDR
The plain abdominal radiograph is a simple and readily accessible but nonspecific examination for the diagnosis of abdominal diseases and interpretation of the distribution of fluid, calcification, and gas can help to establish a diagnosis. Expand
Computed tomography of miscellaneous regional and diffuse small bowel disorders.
TLDR
This article reviews the computed tomography findings of miscellaneous regional and diffuse small bowel disorders, and clues to narrowing the differential diagnosis are provided. Expand
Use of intraoperative endoscopy to localize bleeding in the small intestine.
TLDR
A case of 64-year-old woman, where both endoscopic and angiographic techniques were used to localize protracted bleeding, and highly selective angiography and intraoperative endoscopy was used to locate the source of the bleeding. Expand
Small Bowel Crohn Disease at CT and MR Enterography: Imaging Atlas and Glossary of Terms.
TLDR
The recommended standardized nomenclature can be used to generate radiology report dictations that will help guide medical and surgical management for patients with small bowel Crohn disease. Expand

Radiographic imaging of inflammatory bowel disease.
TLDR
Barium studies and cross-sectional imaging studies have complementary roles in the evaluation of patients with suspected IBD and in the differentiation of ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease. Expand

[Barium examinations of the small intestine and the colon in inflammatory bowel disease].
TLDR
Barium examinations, especially of the stomach and colon are decreasing in frequency, so the art of performance and interpretation might get lost and enteroclysis, however, is still the method of reference for the other imaging methods. Expand
Clinical involvement of mesenteric and antimesenteric borders of small bowel loops
TLDR
The ability to distinguish between the mesenteric and antimesenteric borders of small bowel loops further refines the capabilities of radiologic diagnosis in a variety of intraabdominal disease processes. Expand

Findings of anterior abdominal wall hernias at computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging are well documented; however, little information is available about the depiction andExpand
Intestinal giardiasis: the importance of serial filming.
TLDR
Three cases were encountered in which recognition of subtle radiographic abnormalities in the small intestine was responsible for proper diagnosis, and findings consisted of a progression from relatively normal jejunum on initial films to dilution, segmentation, and apparent increased fold thickness in the proximal small intestine on delayed films. Expand

TLDR
The results indicate that double-contrast radiographic findings of the small intestine in patients with amyloidosis include mucosal abnormalities that vary according to the pathologic type of amyloids deposition. Expand
Gallstone Ileus Demonstrated by CT
TLDR
Awareness of the CT findings in gallstone ileus may result in more rapid diagnosis and treatment, which may lead to a decrease in the rather high morbidity and mortality seen in this disease. Expand

TLDR
The demonstration of a diverticulum-like structure or a fistulous tract adjacent to the first portion of the duodenum associated with jejunal dilatation and barium dilution is highly reliable. Expand
