Is a clearly defined black loop in the mid-left bowel on abdominal X-ray significant if a previous X-ray five days earlier did not show the loop?
If sentinel loop, mid-left, is evident on one of two abdominal x-rays due to severe constipation, can this indicate intermittent bowel obstruction or intermittent pancreatic inflammation, or other?
Obstruction: That radiologic finding is usually a result of a bowel obstruction, but can also be seen sometimes in severe diarrhea. When the bowel is blocked the secretions from your intestines and stomach cannot pass into the colon where the liquid is reabsorbed. This cause the fluid to fill the bowel and stretch it. ...Read more
