Abstract

The aim of this study was to determine if water was comparable to gastrografin as an oral contrast medium in defining anatomic details of abdominopelvis computerized tomography. Atotal of 98 patients referred to the Diagnostic Imaging Department, Hospitak Kuala Lumpur from January to April 2009 for abdominopelvis CT with intravenous contrast enhancement were studied using Siemens Somatom Sensation 16 scanner. The results showed that water, with superior distension and delineation capabilities of the gaster and bowel, was comparable to gastrografin as an oral contrast medium.
