Abstract

While barium enema is the most useful investigation in the primary diagnosis of diverticular disease of the colon, this paper presents further evidence that the terms "diverticulosis" and "diverticulitis" are unsatisfactory and shows that a radiological classification on the traditional criteria is not accurate in determining whether or not inflammation is associated with colonic diverticula.
