- Pelvic MRI in children with Crohn disease and suspected perianal involvement. Essary, Brendan; Kim, John; Anupindi, Sudha; Katz, J. Aubrey; Nimkin, Katie // Pediatric Radiology;Feb2007, Vol. 37 Issue 2, p201
MRI is an important imaging tool in evaluation of adult and pediatric patients with Crohn disease. Pelvic MRI, in particular, has become the method of choice to evaluate for perianal fistulas and associated complications of Crohn disease. MRI can define the extent and location of perianal...
- Detecting active inflammation and fibrosis in pediatric Crohn's disease: prospective evaluation of MR-E and CT-E. Quencer, Keith; Nimkin, Katherine; Mino-Kenudson, Mari; Gee, Michael // Abdominal Imaging;Aug2013, Vol. 38 Issue 4, p705
Symptoms of Crohn's disease (CD) can be due to active inflammation or fibrosis. Differentiating these based on clinical presentation, endoscopy, laboratory parameters, and clinical scoring methods can be inaccurate and/or invasive. As therapy decisions are often directed based on whether active...
- MR Imaging of Crohn’s disease: what is the attraction?: Koh DM, Miao Y, Chinn RJS, et al., MR Imaging Evaluation of the Activity of Crohn’s Disease. AJR 2001;177:1325—32. Ott, David J. // American Journal of Gastroenterology;Jan2003, Vol. 98 Issue 1, p211
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of MR imaging in assessing the activity of Crohnâ€™s disease. Activity assessment is important in this disorder to identify patients with active inflammation so that optimal and newer forms of therapy can be prescribed appropriately ....
- 2012 American Roentgen Ray Society Annual Meeting: MR enterography is as good or better than standard imaging exams for pediatric Crohn's patients. // Biomedical Market Newsletter;5/5/2012, Vol. 21, p1
The article focuses on a new study which reveals the superiority of magnetic resonance enterography over computed tomographic enterography in Crohn's disease diagnosis.

- Cerebral spinal fluid flow, venous drainage and spinal cord compression in achondroplastic children: impact of magnetic resonance findings for decompressive surgery at the cranio-cervical junction. Brühl, Klaus; Stoeter, Peter; Wietek, Beate; Schwarz, Manfred; Humpl, Tilman; Schumacher, Reinhard; Spranger, Jürgen // European Journal of Pediatrics;2001, Vol. 160 Issue 1, p10
Abstract In order to investigate the diagnostic properties of MRI of the brain and spine in achondroplastic children with regard to decompressive surgery, 25 patients were examined by conventional morphological and by "functional" imaging of CSF flow and magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) of...

- MR-enterography with diffusion weighted imaging: ADC values in normal and pathological bowel loops, a possible threshold ADC value to differentiate active from inactive Crohn's disease. NINIVAGGI, V.; MISSERE, M.; RESTAINO, G.; GANGEMI, E.; DI MATTEO, M.; PIERRO, A.; SALLUSTIO, G.; BONOMO, L. // European Review for Medical & Pharmacological Sciences;2016, Vol. 20 Issue 21, p4540
OBJECTIVE: The aim of our study was to compare the apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) values of pathological bowel loops wall (pADC) with the ADC values of normal appearing ones (naADC) and to determine a discriminating threshold. PATIENTS AND METHODS: 60 patients were studied at our...
- MR motility imaging in Crohnâ€™s disease improves lesion detection compared with standard MR imaging. Froehlich, Johannes M.; Waldherr, Christian; Stoupis, Christoforos; Erturk, S. Mehmet; Patak, Michael A. // European Radiology;Aug2010, Vol. 20 Issue 8, p1945
To evaluate retrospectively in patients with Crohnâ€™s disease (CD) if magnetic resonance (MR) motility alterations correlate with CD typical lesions leading to an increased detection rate. Forty patients with histologically proven CD underwent MR enterography (MRE), including coronal cine...
