Abstract

OBJECTIVE. The purpose of this article is to illustrate and describe the characteristic MR enterography findings in children with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and to present MR enterography as the first-choice imaging modality in this setting. CONCLUSION. Given its high sensitivity and specificity for IBD and lack of ionizing radiation, MR enterography is a valuable technique for examining children with IBD.
