 Enterography is extremely useful for detection of small bowel diseases, such as observation of lesions in the entire small intestine. However, it is sometimes challenging to visualize the lower small intestine during enterography using an oral approach, particularly in the pelvic small intestine, due to retention of barium, small bowel stricture, and adhesion. Retrograde ileography is used in such situations to compensate for these disadvantages. A unique method has been developed using balloon-assisted enteroscopy and the sonde tube of Fukuoka University Chikushi Hospital. If needed, this method can be applied in patients with small bowel diseases, particularly Crohn's disease. In this manuscript, we describe the procedure and methods used in ileography.
