Radiologic Approach to the Diagnosis of Bowel Emergencies in Neonates

Neonatal bowel disorders represent a diverse set of congenital and acquired conditions spanning the alimentary tract. Clinical presentation is variable and reflects both the site of gastrointestinal involvement as well as the underlying pathology. Several of the neonatal bowel disorders represent true surgical emergencies and require prompt diagnosis for optimal outcomes. Radiologic studies, which may consist of radiography, upper gastrointestinal series, barium enema, and/or ultrasonography, provide essential data to achieve the correct diagnosis.
