Abstract

The radiologic workup of patients with known or suspected small bowel obstruction and the timing of surgical intervention in this complex situation have undergone considerable changes over the past two decades. The diagnosis and treatment of small bowel obstruction, a common clinical condition often associated with signs and symptoms similar to those seen in other acute abdominal disorders, continue to evolve. This article examines the changes related to the use of imaging in the diagnosis and management of patients with this potentially dangerous problem and revisits pertinent controversies.
