Small Intestinal obstruction

A recent study has supported the results of several preceding studies in that abdominal ultrasound is highly sensitive and specific for identifying small intestinal obstruction and can be used as a sole imaging modality for obstruction.  In addition the recent study has shown that abdominal ultrasonography had greater accuracy, fewer equivocal results and provided greater diagnostic confidence than radiography.
