Abstract

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is an important cause of abdominal pain in the pediatric population. Magnetic resonance enterography (MRE) plays a crucial role in assessment of disease severity, location, extent of disease, and assessment for associated complications. As MR imaging technology has advanced, new techniques have been brought into clinical practice. Recent research has expanded our understanding of how the inflammatory processes in IBD manifest on MRE and improved radiology's ability to accurately assess the disease and its associated complications. This article discusses up-to-date MR imaging techniques and imaging manifestations of IBD in pediatric patients.
