  • chronic
  • It causes problems with digestion and can be acute or chronic. (medindia.net)
  • Evidence has demonstrated that the release of high levels of proinflammatory cytokines during acute enteric infection causes increased gut permeability leading to translocation of the commensal bacteria across the epithelial barrier resulting in significant damage to local tissues, which can result in chronic gut abnormalities in sensitive individuals.

  • incidental
  • However, the presence of gallstones is a frequent incidental finding and does not always necessitate treatment, in the absence of identifiable disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • modality
  • Ultrasonography (USG) is the initial imaging modality of choice for the evaluation of the suspected acute gall bladder disorders, and it is often sufficient for a correct diagnosis. (biomedsearch.com)
  • The gold standard imaging modality for the presence of gallstones is ultrasound of the right upper quadrant. (wikipedia.org)
  • bowel
  • The conventional Ba meal follow through for the small bowel is less accurate, though more comfortable to the patient. (homeoint.org)
  • fluid
