what would be the reason for having a patient who's had subtotal colectomy with ileostomy placement undergo a fluroscopic single contrast enema test?

Many reasons: If it was subtotal colectomy with anasthomosis to rectum and protective iliostomy then most likley it's to check the anasthomosis prior to iliostomy closure
