MDCT and 3D imaging in transient enteroenteric intussusception: Clinical observations and review of the literature

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

OBJECTIVE. This article will review the current role of MDCT and 3D imaging in the diagnosis and management of adults with enteroenteric intussusception. CONCLUSION. Because of significant advancements in CT along with its increasing use, detection of enteroenteric intussusceptions by CT has increased. These findings are sometimes in asymptomatic patients, often transient, and without an identifiable lead point. This has complicated the management of adult patients with intussusception because not every patient with intussusception may need surgery.
