The role of imaging in the management of Necrotizing Enterocolitis:

Necrotizing Enterocolitis (NEC) remains a clinical and diagnostic challenge in neonatal care. Imaging is an important part of its management, but routines and methods vary between hospitals and countries. This survey aims at mapping current perceptions of the role that medical imaging plays and should (or could) play in caring for patients with known or suspected NEC, as well as the interaction between radiologists and clinicians in this respect. A similar questionnaire will be distributed to neonatologists and pediatric surgeons for comparison of perspectives between the different specialties involved. The result can hopefully be used as a base for further discussion on the optimal use of medical imaging for diagnosing and monitoring the disease.
