Abstract

The diagnosis and treatment of small bowel obstruction continue to evolve. The imaging approach in the work-up of patients with known or suspected small bowel obstruction and the timing of surgical intervention in this disease have undergone considerable changes over the past two decades. This article examines the current concepts related to the use of imaging technology in the diagnosis and management of patients with small bowel obstruction. The meaning of frequently used but poorly defined terms in describing intestinal obstruction is clarified and illustrated.
