Enteroclysis is an excellent barium technique for demonstrating morphological abnormalities in the small intestine. In a review of 1465 patients examined by enteroclysis, a sensitivity of 93.1% and a specificity of 96.9% was obtained for detecting the lesion responsible for the patient’s presenting symptoms [1].
