Shortened oral contrast preparation for improved small bowel distension at MR enterography

Shortened oral contrast preparation for improved small bowel distension at MR enterography distension, and especially jejunal distension. Purpose: Adequate small bowel distension in MR enterography is important for the evaluation of disease Key words: MRI—MR enterography—Bowel activity in Crohn’s disease patients. While distension of distension—Small bowel—Oral contrast preparation the distal small bowel can be achieved using standard oral contrast preparation, proximal small bowel disten- sion remains a common impediment. The aim of this Abbreviations study was to compare small bowel distension between a GE Gradient echo 60-min oral contrast preparation and a 45-min oral ICC Intraclass correlation coefficient contrast preparation. IQR Interquartile range Methods: Fifty retrospectively included patients with a MR Magnetic resonance 60-min oral preparation protocol and 50 prospectively MRI Magnetic resonance imaging included patients with a 45-min three-portion oral SPGE Spoiled gradient echo preparation protocol were included in the study. Both SSFSE Single-shot fast spin echo groups gradually ingested a total of 1600 mL 2% T1-w T1 weighted MRI sequence Mannitol solution during the preparation time. Two T2-w T2 weighted MRI sequence observers independently graded distension of the stom- ach, duodenum, jejunum, ileum, and (neo-) terminal ileum. Total small bowel distension was calculated as the Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging is commonly used for sum of all small bowel segment Abdominal Radiology Springer Journals
