Some months back I had a CT Enterography performed and subsequently last month they did an MR Enterography (same thing with Magnets no radiation). Eventually this diagonistic tool gradually pushed me towards the biologics. I wanted to share to the experience with all of you. Everything is same as the CT scan, biggest challenge is keeping the contrast down...oh boy was that fun or what...so get ready to take about 3 bottles of contrast with 40 mins and keep it all in when it wants to get out badly.
Here are the results from the CT-
3.5 cm stricture involving the mid ileum with associated
enhancing mucosa suggesting active Crohn's disease, and with
surrounding fibrofatty proliferation. Two focal strictures
proximal, and two focal strictures distal to this 3.5 cm
stricture with intervening small bowel dilatation.
The mucosa at the level of this 3.5 cm stricture is
hyperenhancing, which suggests active Crohn's disease. Again,
there is extensive fibrofatty proliferation surrounding this
bowel loop, the sequela of chronic inflammation.
