  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

 The present situation of radiologic examination in the western countries, especially in the USA, is considered, based on the recent bibliography. Through personal communication and impression in the meetings of the Society of Gastrointestinal Radiologists (USA) some notes are added to what is shown behind the bibliography and what is not felt out on the bibliography. The enterodysis is considered to be a superior method for examining the small intestine, but this has not become so popular as the double contrast method of the stomach in Japan. As with the double contrast method of the small intestine, methylcellulose method following the enteroclysis is recommended in the USA.
