Computed tomography enteroclysis: a review.

Summary of "Computed tomography enteroclysis: a review."

Computed tomography (CT) enteroclysis is being performed routinely for evaluation of suspected small bowel diseases. The availability of multidetector CT scanners has further increased the diagnostic yield of enteroclysis. There is excellent depiction of small bowel wall pathology on CT enteroclysis especially with use of negative enteric contrast. We discuss the CT enteroclysis technique and procedure along with the imaging spectrum of some common small bowel pathologies.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Computed tomography where there is continuous X-ray exposure to the patient while being transported in a spiral or helical pattern through the beam of irradiation. This provides improved three-dimensional contrast and spatial resolution compared to conventional computed tomography, where data is obtained and computed from individual sequential exposures.

Computed tomography modalities which use a cone or pyramid-shaped beam of radiation.

Tomography using x-ray transmission and a computer algorithm to reconstruct the image.

Tomography using radioactive emissions from injected RADIONUCLIDES and computer ALGORITHMS to reconstruct an image.

An imaging technique using compounds labelled with short-lived positron-emitting radionuclides (such as carbon-11, nitrogen-13, oxygen-15 and fluorine-18) to measure cell metabolism. It has been useful in study of soft tissues such as CANCER; CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM; and brain. SINGLE-PHOTON EMISSION-COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY is closely related to positron emission tomography, but uses isotopes with longer half-lives and resolution is lower.
