Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The diagnostic use of ionizing radiation during pregnancy is to be avoided whenever possible due to the risk to the unborn child. However, vomiting presenting after the first trimester of pregnancy is unusual, and if severe or persistent, requires investigation. We present a case where reluctance to expose the fetus to radiation could have resulted in a potentially serious delay in the diagnosis of maternal small bowel volvulus.
