[Radiologic diagnosis of inflammatory complications of colonic diverticulosis].Vestn Rentgenol Radiol. 1994 Jul-AugVR
The authors analyze x-ray findings in 194 patients with colonic diverticulosis and its inflammatory complications. Clinical, x-ray, and morphologic studies helped the authors to specify the x-ray semeiotics of diverticulitis, paraintestinal infiltrates, intestinal fistulas. An optimal complex of radiological methods to detect each of these complications has been developed. The authors claim that irrigoscopy supplemented, if necessary, with simultaneous fistulography, or oral enterography is the priority and basic method for the diagnosis of inflammatory complications of colonic diverticulosis.
