Computed Tomography Enterography
Computed tomography enterography (CTE) is used to make pictures of the small intestine. The small intestines are part of your digestive system. They lie between the stomach and large intestine.
A CTE creates an x-ray picture that is enhanced by a computer. It can provide information about organs, soft tissues, bones, and blood vessels.
