Detailed evaluation of the small bowel is difficult because of its inaccessibility. The small bowel follow-through examination using barium, has low diagnostic sensitivity. Enteroclysis, the injection of contrast material through a duodenal or jejunal tube, offers a newer and highly sensitive method of radiological evaluation. Our paper describes the technique, clinical indications, and side effects of enteroclysis.
