BackgroundVideo capsule enteroscopy (VCE) has revolutionized small bowel imaging, enabling visual examination of the mucosa of the entire small bowel, while MR enteroclysis (MRE) and CT enteroclysis (CTE) have largely replaced conventional barium enteroclysis. A new indication for MRE and CTE is the clinical suspicion of small bowel strictures, as indicated by delayed or non-delivery of a test capsule given before a VCE examination, to exclude stenosis. The aim of this study was to determine… 
Utility of Computed Tomographic Enteroclysis/Enterography for the Assessment of Mucosal Healing in Crohn's Disease
TLDR
Comparing findings from computed tomographic enteroclysis/enterography with those from the mucosal surface found CTE appeared to be a useful diagnostic method for assessment of mucosal healing in Crohn's disease.
Retained enteroscopy capsule in a patient with diaphragm disease.

TLDR
This case highlights the difficulty of diagnosing diaphragm disease without laparotomy and bowel resection and suggests capsule enteroscopy should be avoided as a diagnostic modality of small-bowel disease if computed tomography raises the suspicion of strictures.
Capsule Endoscopy in the Evaluation of Crohn's Disease
TLDR
Although the risk of capsule retention remains a concern particularly in subjects with Crohn’s disease, VCE is a very safe diagnostic test with extremely small risk of adverse events in the vast majority of patients.
Imaging modalities in pediatric inflammatory bowel disease
TLDR
Advances in imaging modalities have revolutionized the assessment of children with IBD in recent years and cross-sectional imaging is now preferred because, among other advantages, it can potentially distinguish active inflammation from fibrosis, characterize stricturing and penetrating complications, and diagnose extraintestinal manifestations.
Video Capsule Retention in Inflammatory Bowel Disease: An Unusual Presentation and Discussion of Retrieval Methods
TLDR
A patient who was investigated with VCE for weight loss and anaemia is described, who had previously undergone colectomy with ileoanal pouch formation for ulcerative colitis and was subsequently diagnosed with Crohn's disease.
Clinical Use of Patency Capsule: A Comprehensive Review of the Literature.
TLDR
A comprehensive review of the available literature regarding the characteristics, indications, clinical use, effectiveness, and adverse events of the patency capsule is presented.

Is the use of AGILE patency capsule prior to videocapsule endoscopy useful in all patients with spondyloarthritis?
TLDR
The AGILE patency capsule does not seem to be a useful tool for all patients with spondyloarthritis prior to small bowel videocapsule endoscopy (ClinicalTrial.gov ID NCT 00768950).
Small-bowel endoscopy – an introduction for radiologists
TLDR
This short review provides radiologists with basic knowledge concerning the latest developments in small-bowel endoscopy, with an emphasis on the way radiology and endoscope may interact.
Small-bowel capsule endoscopy and device-assisted enteroscopy for diagnosis and treatment of small-bowel disorders: European Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ESGE) Clinical Guideline.
TLDR
This Guideline is an official statement of the European Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy and addresses the roles of small-bowel capsule endoscope and device-assisted enteroscopy for diagnosis and treatment ofsmall-bowe disorders.

Small-bowel disease: comparison of MR enteroclysis images with conventional enteroclysis and surgical findings.
TLDR
If magnetic resonance (MR) enteroclysis can be performed routinely with adequate image quality and sufficient small-bowel distention is found, and the functional information provided by MR enterocylysis is identical to that provided at conventional enterOClysis.
CT enterography as a diagnostic tool in evaluating small bowel disorders: review of clinical experience with over 700 cases.
TLDR
CT enterography clearly depicts the small bowel inflammation associated with Crohn disease by displaying mural hyperenhancement, stratification, and thickening; engorged vasa recta; and perienteric inflammatory changes, and is becoming the first-line modality for the evaluation of suspected inflammatory bowel disease.
Small bowel: preliminary comparison of capsule endoscopy with barium study and CT.
TLDR
In patients without a small-bowel stricture at barium study, more small-Bowel disease was found at CE when findings were retrospectively compared with barium examination and CT findings.
MR enteroclysis in the diagnosis of small-bowel neoplasms.
TLDR
Eighty-six of 91 studies were correctly interpreted, resulting in an overall diagnostic accuracy of 0.95 for MR enteroclysis in the detection of small-bowel neoplasms.
MR enteroclysis: technical considerations and clinical applications
TLDR
Initial experience shows that MRE is very efficient in the diagnosis of small bowel tumors and can be used in the evaluation ofSmall bowel obstruction and Magnetic resonance fluoroscopy can be performed during MRE examination and might be useful in studying low-grade stenosis or motility-related disorders.
Prospective comparison of MR enteroclysis with multidetector spiral-CT enteroclysis: interobserver agreement and sensitivity by means of "sign-by-sign" correlation
TLDR
Taking the given study design into account, MSCTE provides better sensitivity in detecting lesions of the small bowel than MRE, with higher interobserver agreement.
Crohn's disease evaluated with magnetic resonance enteroclysis: diagnostic performance of experienced and inexperienced readers before and after training
TLDR
Most findings of Crohn's disease in the terminal ileum were evaluated with high diagnostic performance by all readers, however, the inexperienced readers evaluated BWU with a low sensitivity and overestimated the number of FIS, number of ABS, and increased BWT in the jejunum.
Diagnosis of small bowel Crohn’s disease: a prospective comparison of capsule endoscopy with magnetic resonance imaging and fluoroscopic enteroclysis
TLDR
CE and MRI are complementary methods for diagnosing small bowel Crohn’s disease because CE is capable of detecting limited mucosal lesions that may be missed by MRI, but awareness of bowel obstruction is mandatory.
Small-bowel imaging in Crohn's disease: a prospective, blinded, 4-way comparison trial.
TLDR
The sensitivity of CE for active small-bowel Crohn's disease was not significantly different from CTE, ileocolonoscopy, or SBFT, however, lower specificity and the need for preceding small-Bowel radiography may limit the utility of CE as a first-line test for Crohn't disease.
Assessment of Crohn’s disease activity in the small bowel with MR and conventional enteroclysis: preliminary results
TLDR
Abnormalities strongly suggestive of active Crohn’s disease can be disclosed on MR enteroclysis examinations and may provide pictorial information for local inflammatory activity and provide statistically significant differences between active and non-active patients.
