Multislice CT enteroclysis: technique and clinical applications

Clin Radiol. 2006 Jan;61(1):31-9. doi: 10.1016/j.crad.2005.08.006.


Computed tomography (CT) enteroclysis was introduced to overcome the individual deficiencies of barium enteroclysis and abdominal CT. The use of multislice CT technology has made the procedure a feasible extension of the intubation infusion method of small bowel examination. This review is an update of the technique and clinical application of CT enteroclysis with illustrations.
