3, 4) A comparison of barium enteroclysis and abdominal CT performed in the same patients with small-bowel Crohn's disease has demonstrated a much higher yield of CT in revealing mural and extraluminal manifestations of disease, including abscesses, while enteroclysis was superior for luminal abnormalities including low-grade bowel obstruction from stenosis, ulcerations, and demonstration of fistulae mainly as a result of the enteral volume challenge generated by the controlled infusion of the contrast agent.
Thus, repeat physical examinations and X-ray films are needed and enteroclysis studies or CT scan is helpful in diagnosis.

4) Lastly, it's worth noting that MR enteroclysis has a high priority score of 8 in evaluating suspected intermittent or low-grade small bowel obstruction, on par with CT of the abdomen and pelvis with contrast, which also scores 8.
The main diagnostic methods are conventional enteroclysis, CT- and MRI-enteroclysis.
Enteroclysis is thought to be the best diagnostic tool for visualizing uncomplicated diverticulosis because the resultanat intraluminal positive pressure make diverticula more prominent11.
Magnetic Resonance (MR) enteroclysis is an established modality to delineate the polyps and poses no risk of radiation.
Once a diagnosis of ileal diverticulitis is made on CT, an enteroclysis should be performed to evaluate for other small bowel diseases such as Crohn's.
They detail how to perform and interpret all types of procedures for each part of the gastrointestinal and genitourinary tracts, including the modified barium swallow, videoflouroscopic pharyngography, double and single-contrast esophagography and upper GI exams, small bowel follow throughs, enteroclysis, double and single-contrast barium enemas, evacuation proctography, and all types of postoperative GI studies, as well as retrograde urethrography, voiding cystography, and retrograde pyeloureterography.
9) The Arab Argentine medical student, with his desire to assimilate into criollo society and embrace science and progress, associates the tubing of the water pipe with the tubing of the enteroclysis device and creates an incongruous, even grotesque, substitution.
