Abstract

CT enterography and magnetic resonance (MR) enterography are widely used imaging modalities used to examine the small bowel. These radiologic tests are distinguished from routine abdominopelvic CT and MRI by the oral ingestion of a large amount of neutral contrast to distend the small bowel before scanning. For achievement of high quality, diagnostic images and proper technique are required. Conducted protocols still vary in patient preparation, enteric contrast, and CT and MRI acquisition sequences, resulting in heterogeneous diagnostic accuracy. The purpose of this article is to review the processes and techniques that optimize CT/MR enterography for patients with suspected Crohn's disease or other small bowel diseases.
