Assessment of Crohn's disease in the small bowel: Prospective comparison of magnetic resonance enteroclysis with conventional enteroclysis

European Radiology
Gabriele MasselliGianfranco Gualdi


Our objective was to assess the diagnostic value of magnetic resonance enteroclysis (MRE) compared with conventional enteroclysis (CE) in patients with Crohn's disease. A secondary objective was to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of each different MR sequence. Sixty-six consecutive patients with known Crohn's disease underwent MRE and CE. Fast imaging employing steady-state acquisition (FIESTA), single-shot fast spin-echo (ssFSE), and contrast-enhanced T1-weighted sequences were assessed by two radiologists who reached a consensus about the following findings: visualization of wall ulcers, pseudopolyps, fistulae, mural stenosis, and mesenteric abnormalities. Standard descriptive statistics and the McNemar test were used. The sensitivity, specificity and accuracy of MRE were 90-87% and 83% for the depiction of parietal ulcers, 84%-88% and 86% for pseudopolyps, 100-94% and 96% for mural stenosis, 93-100% and 94% for fistulae. The number of detected extraluminal findings was significantly higher with MRE (P < 0.01). The accuracy of FIESTA sequence was statistically higher in the depiction of wall ulcers and fistulae than that of three-dimensional fast spoiled gradient echo (3D-FSPGR) (P < 0.01) and ssFSE (P < 0.05) sequences.
