    Abstract

    A survey questionnaire was sent to 125 radiology programs to determine the frequency and indications for the use of small bowel enteroclysis. Sixty-seven of the 84 respondents perform small bowel enteroclysis while 17 do not. The 3 most common indications for enteroclysis are detection of unexplained gastrointestinal bleeding, partial small bowel obstruction, and Crohn's disease. We conclude that although small bowel enteroclysis is a well-established examination, there are wide differences in the frequency with which it is performed, the techniques of examination, and indications for its use.
