  17. why is a pa the routine for a SBS
    b/c it helps compress the intestines and spread them when pt is lying on their stomach

    and hourly radiographs?
    • 2in above iliac crests
    • iliac crests

  20. where is CR for a PA and/or AP BE
    iliac crest
  21. where is the CR what is the obliquity for an RAO BE
    • CR to iliac crests and 1inch to left of MSP
    • 35-45 oblique
  22. the RAO position of a BE demonstrates what anatomy
    what other position will demonstrate the right colic flexure in profile as the RAO
    right hepatic flexure in profile ascending and descending colon are open w/o superimposition splenic flexure is not viewed

    LPO b/c it is opposite
  23. where is the CR what is the obliquity for an LAO BE
    what other position visualizes the same thing
    • CR at 1-2 in above crests and 1in to the right
    • 35-45 deg
    • RPO
  24. Bag of contrast should be suspended at what height to prevent faster flow of barium into rectum causing pt discomfort
    24-30in above the table
  25. all BE radiographs except for the what 2 projections are take on a 14x17
    for hypersthenic pts what must be done to include appropriate anatomy
    • lateral rectum and butterfly positions 
    • 2 14x17 crosswise cassettes
  26. what are the technical factors for a single contrast and double
    what is the breating
    what cells should be selected when using AEC
    • 100-125 single contrast
    • 80-90 kvp for a double contrast
    • Suspend respiration and expose on expiration
    • all cells selected when using aec
  27. why must we or could we use two films on an ap or pa of the colon
    to make sure we include the splenic flexure b/c it is located higher up and rectal ampulla (area where feces is stored)
  28. what structures are best shown in a PA/AP BE
    transverse colon and portion of sigmoid colon BA filled
  29. what structures are best visualized in an LAO or RPO BE
    the splenic flexure should be seen w/o superimposition
  30. where is the CR for a RPO BE
    1-2in above crests and 1in to the left of MSP
  31. where is the CR for a LPO BE
    • cr to level of iliac crests cr 1in to right of MSP
    • visualizes the right hepatic flexure as an RAO would
  32. where is the CR for a lateral rectum
    what casette would you use
    • CR to level of ASIS and midcoronal plane (midway between asis and posterior sacrum)
    • 10x12 length wise
  33. what is the alternative position to the lateral rectum
    why is the position done for
    • ventral decub (cross table or xtable lateral)
    • to visualize air in the rectum in a double contrast study
  34. what structure does the right lateral decub position show
    entire colon and an air filled splenic flexure and descending colon
  35. where is the CR for a right lateral decub BE (only for a double contrast study)
    1-2 in above crests because splenic flexure is located higher in abdomen
  36. if we are doing a single contrast BE are decubs R & L necessary
  37. which position in a double contrast study visualizes the an air filled hepatic flexure and ascending colon and cecum
    where is the CR for this position
    • left lateral decub BE
    • at level of crests
  38. what size cassette is needed for a ap axial or ap axial oblique (LPO) Butterfly positions
    what is the tube angle ap axial
    where is the CR for the ap axial and ap axial oblique
    what is the obliquity of the LPO
    • 11x14
    • 30-40 deg cephalad
    • AP axial: 2" inferior to ASIS at MSP
    • LPO:2'' inferior and 2in medial to right ASIS
    • 30-40
  39. what size cassette is needed for a pa axial or pa axial oblique (RAO) Butterfly positions
    what is the tube angle for pa axial
    where is the CR for the pa axial and pa axial oblique
    what is the obliquity of the RAO
    • 11x14 lengthwise
    • angle cr 30-40 caudal
    • PA: at ASIS at MSP
    • RAO:cr at level of asis and 2in to left of spinous process
    • 35-45 deg
  40. a pa post evac use what IR and where is the cr
    do we need more or less penetration
    • 14x17
    • cr at the crests
    • less penetration because there is less barium
  41. what is the follow up care for BE
    pt should increase their intake of fluids and increase fiber intake
