Abstract

When small-bowel obstruction (SBO) is suspected, we usually perform an ultrasound (US) of the small bowel in order to correlate the results with those of the abdominal plain film. US is able to not only confirm and support the initial diagnosis, it also offers additional findings and enhances the overall diagnostic confidence.
