EMUS Ottawa Journal Club - Sept 18, 2013

Bowel has often been called one of the enemies of Ultrasound. The gas, fluid, and stool filled tube often "gets in the way" of seeing more "important" structures like the Aorta, Kidneys, and Gallbladder. If we take a step back and appreciate bowel ultrasound for what it can tell us about the condition of a patient, we may come to realize that there is much this enemy has to offer. This week we examine the ultrasound findings of a common emergency medicine presentation: diverticulitis.
