Abstract

The authors illustrate the technique for small-bowel imaging using enteroclysis with multidetector-row computed tomography (MDCT), underscoring the important role played by CT in the assessment of the small bowel thanks to the advent of first the spiral and later the multidetector technique. The paper makes a detailed comparison of the various methods that have been used in CT study of the small bowel and proposes a standardised technique to achieve correct distension of bowel loops and adequate evaluation of bowel wall vascularity, making reference to the well-consolidated experiences of the various Italian research groups. The paper accurately describes the different procedures required for CT assessment of the small bowel, from nasojejunal intubation to the selection of the most appropriate acquisition phases for assessment of bowel wall vascularity.
