Abstract

Magnetic resonance enterography (MRE) is fast becoming the first-line radiological investigation to evaluate the small bowel in patients with Crohn's disease. It can demonstrate both mural and extramural complications. The lack of ionizing radiation, together with high-contrast resolution, multiplanar capability and cine-imaging make it an attractive imaging modality in such patients who need prolonged follow-up. A key question in the management of such patients is the assessment of disease activity. Clinical indices, endoscopic and histological findings have traditionally been used as surrogate markers but all have limitations. MRE can help address this question. The purpose of this pictorial review is to (1) detail the MRE protocol used at our institution; (2) describe the rationale for the MR sequences used and their limitations; (3) compare MRE with other small bowel imaging techniques; (4) discuss how MRE can help distinguish between inflammatory, stricturing and penetrating disease, and thus facilitate management of this difficult condition. Main Messages • MR enterography (MRE) is the preferred imaging investigation to assess Crohn's disease. T2-weighted, post-contrast and diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) can be used. • MRE offers no radiation exposure, high-contrast resolution, multiplanar ability and cine imaging. • MRE can help define disease activity, a key question in the management of Crohn's disease. • MRE can help distinguish between inflammatory, stricturing and penetrating disease. • MRE can demonstrate both mural and extramural complications.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 4. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 13 November 2018.
All research outputs
#4,271,395
of 14,805,703 outputs
Outputs from Insights Into Imaging
#182
of 509 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#33,274
of 123,279 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Insights Into Imaging
#1
of 8 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 14,805,703 research outputs across all sources so far. This one has received more attention than most of these and is in the 70th percentile.
So far Altmetric has tracked 509 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 4.9. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 64% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 123,279 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 71% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 8 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
