When I've had 2 small bowel follow through's with the barium and they looked at the diseased part of my intestine the specialist used a special term for it and it was in relation to the way it looked. Healthy bowel has shape and curves and diseased bowel after a while looks straight and unshapely with no special characteristics. I used a another term that I said was toothpaste bowel but its not what he used....its driving me crazy and I have been racking my brain, any suggestions?

read the radiologist's report of their interpretation of the xray. I dunno perhaps "friable", thickened etc.

The term you might be looking for is string segment.
