Small Bowel Follow-through

Small Bowel Follow-through

A small-bowel follow-through, also called small-bowel series, is a radiologic examination of the small intestine from the distal duodenum/duodenojejunal junction to the ileocecal valve.

An X-ray examination of the most proximal small bowel (duodenum) is typically done together with an examination of the esophagus and stomach and is called an upper GI series.

Famous quotes containing the words small and/or bowel:

    Parents need to recognize that the negative behavior accompanying certain stages is just a small part of the total child. It should not become the main focus or be pushed into the limelight.
    Saf Lerman (20th century)

    I who was a house full of bowel movement,
    I who was a defaced altar,
    I who wanted to crawl toward God
    could not move nor eat bread.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
