Has anyone had any barium xrays or CT with contrast that gave any information at all concerning adhesions?

I have noticed in doctor's notes that they can tell, for example in a barium enema, how fast the different areas of the colon fill with the barium and this can give them an idea of a problem. I know xrays can't *diagnose* adhesions, but the findings can *suggest* their presence. I was wondering if anyone has had this experience.

Also, I've read (on some website somewhere) that MRI with contrast can pick up adhesions, but then in other places I've read that isn't the case. Just wondering.
