Abstract

Prompt diagnosis of malrotation and midgut volvulus in infants with bilious emesis is critical. However because of the limited frequency of pediatric upper gastrointestinal (UGI) fluoroscopic procedures in neonates, many diagnostic radiology residents complete their training never having seen or performed a UGI on a baby for evaluation of malrotation and midgut volvulus. A UGI simulation model for infants with bilious emesis was created to supplement the hands-on fluoroscopic experience of residents in training. We are now studying the addition of simulated UGI studies to our pediatric radiology curriculum.
