ABSTRACT
This article focuses on a study related to the value of MR colonography for assessment of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). To date, colonoscopy with biopsy remains the method of first choice to diagnose IBD. Discrete morphological alterations such as erythema, oedema, and granularity of the mucosa, small erosions, or aphthous ulcers can be reliably depicted by videoendoscopy and subsequently confirmed by histopathology. By testing the feasibility of their technique in healthy subjects, they established sensitive measures for correctly defining normal colonic segments.
