RSNA publishes consensus statement on imaging for GI bleeding

The RSNA journal Radiology on March 5 published a multisociety consensus statement on the role of imaging for gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding. 

The statement, titled “The Role of Imaging for GI Bleeding: Consensus Recommendations from the American College of Gastroenterology and Society of Abdominal Radiology,” offers guidance in this area of patient care. It provides a review of the radiologic exams used to evaluate for GI bleeding, compares advantages and limitations relative to endoscopic exams, and offers recommendations on technical parameters and utilization of radiologic techniques for GI bleeding.

The authors wrote that this guidance stems from widespread variation in the use of GI testing along with a lack of knowledge of the advantages and limitations of different techniques.

The full statement can be found here.
