AbstractSome perceived disadvantages of the small bowel meal examination are failure of adequate distension, lack of a double contrast effect and the duration of the procedure. A new use for effervescent granules during the small bowel meal is described which reduces the examination time by 70% and reduces the radiation dose to the patient.
