Over the last decade the use of MR techniques in evaluating small bowel pathology has expanded greatly, and this continues to evolve as more versatile uses are being recognized. At this time MRE plays a critical role in surveillance of patients with established Crohn’s disease and in follow up after medical treatment, sparing patients repeat radiation exposure, which is inherent in CT imaging. Additional applications of MRE include evaluation of small bowel benign and neoplastic lesions, and evaluation of non-inflammatory small bowel entities such as Celiac disease. Additional applications are sure to come as MR techniques continue to advance.
