as a diagnostic tool in evaluating small bowel disorders: review of clinical experience with over 700 cases.
2) CT enterography
and MRI enterography
have additional diagnostic accuracy.
Methods: The retrospective study comparing computed tomography enterography
and magnetic resonance enterography
for diagnosing diseases related to small intestine was conducted at Department of Radiology, Yantai Yuhuangding Hospital, Shandong, China, from July 2012 to February 2014.
University of Michigan, will conduct a comparative effectiveness trial on evaluation of pediatric small bowel Crohn Disease using MR enterography
and ultrasound elastography.
Both computed tomography enteroclysis (CTE) and magnetic resonance enterography
(MRE) offer the advantage of imaging the bowel lumen as well as extraluminal tissues.
demonstrates no areas of stricture formation with interval decompression.
This edition excludes most of the topics in the musculoskeletal section and includes more advanced recent technologies, such as multidetector CT scanning for cardiovascular imaging, CT and MR enterography
and enterocolitis, virtual colonoscopy, CT and MR urography, prostate and breast imaging, and PET/CT scanning.
Applying the CT Enterography
and electroenterography along with intestinal peristaltic sounds also registers cardiac tones and lung rales (Maynugin et.
A recent meta-analysis comparing capsule endoscopy with small-bowel barium radiology, colonoscopy with ileoscopy, computer tomography enterography
and push enteroscopy (9) showed that in patients with suspected or established CD capsule endoscopy was superior to all other modalities for diagnosing non-stricturing small-bowel CD, with the number needed to test of 3 to yield one additional diagnosis of CD over small-bowel radiology and 7 over colonoscopy and ileoscopy.
Computed tomographic enterography
of her abdomen was negative for a bleeding source in the small bowel.
Their results showed CE to have a higher diagnostic yield for nonstricturing small bowel disease than small bowel barium studies, CT enterography
, PE, and colonoscopy with ileoscopy in study populations.
An appropriate work-up would include colonoscopy with ileoscopy (if not previously performed), a small bowel series with barium, or CT, MR enterography
, capsule endoscopy, or upper endoscopy.
