Inyección de contraste en el intestino delgado

La enteroclisis es un examen que se realiza para examinar al intestino delgado. Se coloca un tubo en la nariz y garganta que atraviesa al estómago hasta llegar al intestino delgado. Cuando el tubo está en el lugar correcto, se introduce un colorante de contraste y las imágenes de rayos X se ven en un monitor fluoroscópico para visualizar el trayecto del contraste a través de las estructuras del intestino. El examen de enteroclisis es la forma más completa de comprobar si el intestino delgado es normal o si se sospecha que existe alguna anomalía.
