200mL of gastrografin was administered via a NGT after a preliminary film had been taken.
Six hours after contrast administration the small bowel opacifies showing dilated loops measuring up to 5cm. In the 11 hour film the contrast remains within the small bowel without progression into the colon and this is confirmed on the 16 hour film. Faecal material is seen within the colon. Pacemaker leads, left hip screw and costal cartilage calcification are noted.
Features consistent with a persistent small bowel obstruction.
