CT enterography (CTE) is an alternative diagnostic imaging method used in hemodynamically stable patients.
Demographic and clinical data were collected for each patient from electronic medical records: age, sex, race/ethnicity, smoking status, body mass index before surgery, location of disease, indication for surgery, CD treatment before and after surgery, preoperative Harvey-Bradshaw Index score, first postoperative Harvey-Bradshaw Index score, first postoperative endoscopic findings, first postoperative computed tomography or magnetic resonance enterography result, date of surgery, date of CD recurrence, presentation of recurrence (clinical, endoscopic, and/or radiologic), and date of death.
Magnetic resonance enterography in inflammatory bowel disease
A Magnetic Resonance (MR) enterography was performed, which again showed the whirlpool sign (Figure 2).

Total parenteral nutrition was started to control malnutrition, and a magnetic resonance enterography performed 1 week later showed a 5.6x3.8-cm bezoar in the distal jejunum, surrounding parietal thickening, submucosal edema, and marked distension of upstream loops (Figure 1c).
A definitive diagnosis of CD was based on the results of multiple examinations, such as colonoscopy, small bowel capsule endoscopy, enteroscopy, gastroscope, computed tomography, enterography, histopathological examination, and blood tests (including routine blood examination, erythrocyte sedimentation rate [ESR], C-reactive protein [CRP], and autoimmune-related antibodies).
If the condition seems to be more consistent with Crohn's disease, the doctor will perform a colonoscopy to evaluate the end of the small intestine, the terminal ileum, and may also perform an MRI or CT enterography (imaging performed with contrast materials), upper endoscopy (a flexible tube with a camera and light used to take pictures of the digestive tract), and/or capsule endoscopy (a tiny wireless camera inside a small capsule that is swallowed and later passed through a bowel movement).
"MRI enterography revealed multiple small bowel strictures with dilated ileal and jejunal loops," the BMJ report read.
Magnetic resonance enterography (MRE) is the preferred method of small bowel cross-sectional imaging.
It may also be used in preference to other imaging modalities including computer tomography or magnetic resonance enterography or push or balloon assisted enteroscopy, depending on the clinical scenario [3, 4].
He was evaluated by a gastroenterologist and underwent an MRI enterography and colonoscopy.
