Abstract In preparation of the large bowel prior to barium enema a double blind trial of 257 patients was performed comparing a regime of oral mannitol with a regime of magnesium citrate, bisacodyl and a 3 day low residue diet. Faecal residue and the quality of mucosal coating with barium were assessed. No significant differences were found between the sexes or in the mucosal coating. MCB regime was significantly better than the mannitol regime in cleansing of the large bowel, though there is room for improvement with the former. Copyright
