Small Bowel Crohn Disease at CT and MR Enterography: Imaging Atlas and Glossary of Terms.

Journal Article (Journal Article;Review)

Representatives from the Society of Abdominal Radiology Crohn's Disease-Focused Panel, the Society for Pediatric Radiology, the American Gastroenterological Association, and other international experts recently reported consensus recommendations for standardized nomenclature for the interpretation and reporting of CT enterography and MR enterography findings of small bowel Crohn disease. The consensus recommendations included CT enterography and MR enterography bowel wall findings that are associated with Crohn disease, findings that occur with penetrating Crohn disease, and changes that occur in the mesentery related to Crohn disease. Also included were recommended radiology report impression statements that summarize the findings of small bowel Crohn disease at CT enterography and MR enterography. This article, authored by the Society of Abdominal Radiology Crohn's Disease-Focused Panel, illustrates the imaging findings and recommended radiology report impression statements described in the consensus recommendations with examples of CT enterography and MR enterography images. Additional interpretation guidelines for reporting CT enterography and MR enterography examinations are also presented. The recommended standardized nomenclature can be used to generate radiology report dictations that will help guide medical and surgical management for patients with small bowel Crohn disease. Online supplemental material is available for this article. ©RSNA, 2020See discussion on this article by Heverhagen.
