CT enterography has become an important tool in the evaluation of small bowel diseases, especially in patients with inflammatory bowel diseases. There are several shortcomings of commonly used isotonic mannitol as an oral contrast agent, such as incident adverse reactions and gases in the gut. However, polyethylene glycol can avoid these drawbacks with a good performance in some pilot experiments.
