Abstract [en]

Necrotising Enterocolitis (NEC) remains a potentially devastating emergency in neonates, predominantly the premature. Ever since it was first described in the 60's, imaging has played a great role in definition, staging, and monitoring of the disease. The radiographic image can change before the clinical condition, but typical signs are often transient and may be missing even in severe NEC [1-4]. These circumstances have led to the recommendation of frequent imaging and to the insight that the clinical decisions cannot rely solely on radiological signs [5-7]. Ultrasound (US) as a possibility to enhance sensitivity and diagnostic accuracy was first described in the mid 80's [8, 9] and was included in a diagnostic algorithm suggested by in 1994 [6], but despite great effort to develop and validate the method, its role in the management of NEC has not yet been established [7, 10, 11].

Meanwhile, in order to improve interobserver agreement and diagnostic accuracy of AR, the radiographic signs of NEC have also been systematized into the DAAS scale [12]. Imaging, as an adjunct to clinical assessment [11], is crucial in the diagnosis and management of NEC. The purpose of this survey was to investigate current views and routines, as described by involved specialists, and identify areas in need of further study and discussion.
