Abstract

The development in helical computed tomography (CT) from single-detector to multidetector equipment has overcome peristaltic intestinal artefacts, allowing optimal bowel visualisation and contrast enhancement (CE). As a result, this permits a finer representation and a more accurate evaluation of the bowel and mesentery. Furthermore, technological advances now allow optimal multiplanar reconstruction (MPR). To date, contrast-enhanced multidetector CT (MDCT) has become the gold standard in the evaluation of small-bowel obstruction (SBO).
