  • bile
  • Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth Exocrine pancreatic insufficiency Bile acid diarrhea Urinary urgency Sexual dysfunction Prevention of radiation injury to the small bowel is a key aim of techniques such as brachytherapy, field size, multiple field arrangements, conformal radiotherapy techniques and intensity-modulated radiotherapy. (wikipedia.org)
  • The net effect of enterohepatic recirculation is that each bile salt molecule is reused about 20 times, often multiple times during a single digestive phase. (wikipedia.org)
  • FGF19 has important roles as a hormone produced in the ileum in response to bile acid absorption. (wikipedia.org)
  • The ileum is very efficient at absorbing the glyco- and taurine-conjugated forms of the bile salts. (wikipedia.org)
  • The synthesis of bile acids in the liver is negatively regulated by the ileal hormone fibroblast growth factor 19 (FGF19), and lower levels of this hormone result in overproduction of bile acids, which are more than the ileum can absorb. (wikipedia.org)
  • This nuclear medicine test involves two scans a week apart and so measures multiple cycles of bile acid excretion and reabsorption. (wikipedia.org)
  • small
  • Most NETs of the small and large intestines occur sporadically, while others may occur within the background of an inherited neoplasia syndrome such as multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN1) or neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) (e.g., gastrin-producing G-cell tumors and somatostatin-producing D-cell tumors of the duodenum, respectively).

  • Multiple images from a small bowel follow through. (radiopaedia.org)
  • After bariatric surgery for obesity, connections between the stomach and the ileum can be formed, which may increase bacterial load in the small bowel. (wikipedia.org)

  • Image 1b (Plain radiograph, Erect view): Multiple dilated loops of small bowel with air-fluid levels and "string of pearls" sign indicating a mechanical small bowel obstruction. (wa.gov.au)

  • Image 4 (Plain radiograph): Multiple loops of distended small bowel with air in the biliary tree (arrow). (wa.gov.au)
  • A special imaging technique that uses a computer to collect multiple x ray images into a two-dimensional cross-sectional image. (wikipedia.org)
