Overview

Double-contrast barium enema may be helpful in the diagnosis of familial adenomatous polyposis. Familial adenomatous polyposis might be presented as multiple outgrowths with lobulation or indentation and filling defects on x-rays.

X Ray

Double-contrast Barium enema may be helpful in the diagnosis of familial adenomatous polyposis. Findings on an x-ray suggestive of familial adenomatous polyposis include:[1][2]

  • Multiple pedunculated outgrowth
  • Basal indentation
  • Lobulation
  • Irregular surface contour
