Abstract

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a promising, noninvasive imaging technique for the evaluation of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) colitis. This article addresses the role of MRI in the diagnosis of IBD and the distinction of ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease, including appropriate MRI sequences. The author also compares MRI findings of IBD with those of other imaging modalities, including colonoscopy, ultrasound, barium enema, and computed tomography.
