  • To evaluate the feasibility of MR colonography (MRC) with air using two‐dimensional (2D) T1‐weighted fast spin‐echo (T1wFSE) in patients scheduled for conventional colonoscopy (CC) after classic bowel preparation, and assess the ability of the technique to detect colonic lesions. The distention was sufficient for diagnosis, and the technique provided adequate delineation of the wall in the majority of segments. Residual fluid obscured the wall in different segments, especially in the ascending… CONTINUE READING
