Authors: Rodgers PM, Verma R
This article considers the case for a strategic place for ultrasound (US) bowel evaluation focusing on three common clinical contexts. These include imaging for suspected acute appendicitis and acute diverticulitis, as well as the role of US in a multimodality approach for the diagnosis and management of inflammatory bowel disease and associated complications.
