Intestines, especially the small bowel, are rarely subject to US assessment due to the presence of gases and chyme. The aim of this paper was to analyze ultrasound images in selected pathologies of the small intestine in adults, including the aspects of differential diagnosis. Material and methods In 2001–2012, abdominal ultrasound examinations were conducted in 176 patients with the following small bowel diseases: Crohn's disease (n=35), small bowel obstruction (n=35), yersiniosis (n=28… Expand

EFSUMB Recommendations and Clinical Guidelines for Intestinal Ultrasound (GIUS) in Inflammatory Bowel Diseases.
A task force group of 17 experts in GIUS faced this issue, by developing recommendations and clinical guidelines for the use of GIUS in IBD, under the auspices of EFSUMB. Expand
Point-of-care gastrointestinal and urinary tract sonography in daily evaluation of gastrointestinal dysfunction in critically ill patients (GUTS Protocol).
This article proposes a sonographic examination of the abdomen, using the GUTS protocol (gastrointestinal and urinary tract sonography) in critically ill patients as part of the point-of-care ultrasound evaluation in patients with AGI. Expand
Endosonography and magnetic resonance imaging in the diagnosis of high anal fistulae – a comparison
Magnetic resonance is a more accurate method than endosonography in determining the type of high fistulae and the presence of branches and in assessing the internal opening, endos onography proved more accurate. Expand

Sonography of the small bowel after oral administration of fluid: an assessment of the diagnostic value of the technique
Luminal filling can improve visualisation of bowel walls and fold pattern and may be helpful in selected cases as well as feasibility and possible advantages before and after fluid distension. Expand
Adult celiac disease: US signs.
There are several US signs associated with adult celiac disease, but a combination of signs is characteristic and indicates suspicion of this disease in a high percentage of cases. Expand
Endoscopic and radiographic evaluation of the small bowel in 2012.
An update on the diagnostic and management approach to patients with small bowel disease is reported, emphasizing the advantages and limitations of the latest modalities now available to primary care physicians and gastroenterologists for evaluating patients with presumed disease of the small intestine.

Transient small-bowel intussusceptions in adults: significance of ultrasonographic detection.
Small-bowel intussusceptions in adults are not rare and are frequently self-limiting, idiopathic, or related to organic diseases, mainly Crohn's disease and coeliac disease. Expand
Small bowel ultrasound in patients with celiac disease. Retrospective study.
Specific small bowel pathologies in patients with celiac disease can be well visualized by ultrasound and in combination with clinical and laboratory signs ultrasound examination could have an important role in screening, determination of diagnosis and monitoring of patients with different forms of Celiac disease.

Computed tomography of the small bowel in adult celiac disease: the jejunoileal fold pattern reversal
It is shown that JFPR is not a normal finding and can be demonstrated by CT in the majority of patients with CD, and there was a statistically significant difference in the number of jejunal and ileal folds between the CD patients and the control group. Expand
Bowel sonography in adult celiac disease: diagnostic accuracy and ultrasonographic features
Patients with CD frequently present TABS signs of the disease and operators performing sonography every day have to consider the possibility to suggest CD diagnosis and aTTG determination in these subjects. Expand
A key role for abdominal ultrasound examination in "difficult" diagnoses of celiac disease.
Abdominal US is useful in the diagnostic workup of patients with a high clinical suspicion of CD but with negative serology, and shows that the presence of dilated bowel loops and a thickened small bowel wall had a sensitivity and a negative predictive value in CD diagnosis. Expand
Small Intestinal Contrast Ultrasonography-Based Scoring System: A Promising Approach for the Diagnosis and Follow-Up of Celiac Disease
SICUS could be a reliable and noninvasive technique to confirm a diagnosis of Celiac disease performed using conventional investigations and the possibility of investigating the whole small bowel and the safety of repeating examinations could be useful in the follow-up of celiac patients. Expand
Radiographic indicants of adult celiac disease assessed by double-contrast small bowel enteroclysis.
Double-contrast small bowel enteroclysis can play an important role in excluding or confirming the presence of ACD, provided that an assessment of reproducibility and a prospective re-evaluation of operative characteristics of such radiographic signs are performed. Expand
