there is a q on diverticulosis in qbook ..... in the explanation it is said " barium study is the best to diagnose " .... while in GI section of kaplan lecture notes " clonoscopy is better than barium study"

so which is better ?


in diverticulitis both r ci ct scan should b done.once condition improves colonoscopy is method of choice as we have to rule out tumours also for which barium enema isnt very sensitive


diverticUOLOSIS... the dilemma is to differentiate between the following terms...

the most sensitive

the best

the best initial

most appropriate !!

and the bad thing that kaplan lecture notes is not always precise ...


The best sensitive: colonoscopy

The best: colonoscopy

the best initial: barium



so i think qbook must be corrected !
