"However, recently our
radiologists did not want to come in for an upper GI series on a toddler with
bilious vomiting and a small bowel obstructive picture on the abdominal series.
They stated that this diagnostic procedure could wait until the AM or the
patient could get a CT."
Maybe it would be a good idea to review with them the standard of care from the radiology text books on how to diagnose malro w/volv.
and the age distributions of such said disease process.

Subject: Availability of UGI series at night
What is the availability of Upper GI series with SBFT at night at your hospital?
At my hospital, the radiologists are reading images from an associated regional
ospital at night. Thus, when we need an air enema or upper GI series, we need
o call them in. Getting the air/contrast enema for intussusception has not
een much of a problem at night since we all recognize that time is of the
ssence in this therapeutic/diagnostic procedure. I am wondering about the general availability for this test in other facilities
