Background The role of CT enteroclysis is gaining importance in the diagnosis of small bowel diseases. CT abdomen has become a frequently sought investigation to answer specific clinical questions and to localize the source of the abdominal complaints in undiagnosed cases. The aim of the study is to present our own experiences in CT enteroclysis application, with the use of a 64-detector CT unit. Observations In our study, the most common pathology found was tuberculosis. 7 out of 34 patients were found to have tuberculous infection. We found 5 cases of inflammatory bowel disease, out of which 4 were Crohns disease and 1 case of ulcerative colitis. There were total 8 cases of neoplastic diseases. 3 patients had small and/or large bowel polyps, 2 patients had GIST, and 2 had lymphoma with 1 suspected case of carcinoid syndrome. Conclusion CT enteroclysis with the use of the 64-detector CT unit is a valuable tool in the diagnosis of small bowel diseases. It could supplement or precede capsule endoscopy.
