In recent years, ultrasonography of the bowel has gained momentum as a non-invasive clinical tool in Gastroenterology for the management of inflammatory bowel disease. This is due in large part to the technological advancements in imaging resolution which allow good cross-sectional imaging of the bowel wall. The use of this modality is especially prominent in Europe, where it is widely practised by Gastroenterologists (and indeed part of their training curriculum), and is rapidly spreading to other parts of the world, including Australasia and Canada. At present ultrasonography is not part of training in Gastroenterology in South African institutions due to a lack of resources and expertise.
