MR enterography (MRE) has become the primary imaging modality for assessing Crohn disease in young patients because of its lack of ionizing radiation, superior soft-tissue contrast, and cross-sectional capability to evaluate disease activity as well as extraluminal and extra-intestinal complications. MRE has been extensively validated against both histological and endoscopic references as a noninvasive imaging biomarker of Crohn disease activity. More recent studies have also validated MRE as a… CONTINUE READING
