MD, Department of Radiology, Shariati Hospital, Tehran University of Medical Sciences. North Kargar Ave., Tehran 14114, Iran.


MR enterography (MRE) and CT enterography (CTE) have become the modality of choice in the diagnosis and follow-up of Crohn’s disease, and could potentially play a similar role in a variety of other small bowel disorders. MRE & CTE deliver an image of the entire length of small bowel and surrounding structures making it superior to various endoluminal studies. In this workshop, the technical tips and tricks in MRE and CTE will be reviewed and practical points on reporting be discussed. We will focus on the clinical significance of each enterography finding in cases of Crohn’s disease. Then series of interesting and challenging small bowel cases other than Crohn’s disease will be shown which could be educational mostly for residents and young radiologists.
