Abstract

The management of enterocutaneous fistulas is challenging. Diagnostic imaging plays a central role in understanding the anatomy of the fistula and therefore optimizes its evaluation and management. A wide range of imaging modalities are available for defining the fistulous tract, and associated complications, such as bowel obstruction and abscesses.
