Retrospective comparison of Computed Tomography Enterography and Magnetic Resonance Enterography in diagnosing small intestine disease.
J Pak Med Assoc Jan ;65(7):710-4.
Objective: To compare the efficacy of computed tomography enterography and magnetic resonance enterography in diagnosing small intestinal diseases. Methods: The retrospective study comparing computed tomography enterography and magnetic resonance enterography for diagnosing diseases related to small intestine was conducted at Department of Radiology, Yantai Yuhuangding Hospital, Shandong, China, from July 2012 to February 2014. The efficacy of computed tomography enterography and magnetic resonance enterography results were evaluated for randomly-selected cases to compare the location and characteristics of small intestinal diseases together with small bowel endoscopy and clinical pathology observations. Results: Of the 30 patients in the study, 19(63.3%) were males and 11 (36.7%) were females with an overall mean age of 33.6±19.2 years (range: 24-67 years). the clinical diagnostic accuracy of computed tomography enterography and magnetic resonance enterography was 24(80%) and 21(70%) cases respectively (p>0.05). Conclusions: Computed tomography enterography and magnetic resonance enterography are two techniques that complement each other for diagnostic purposes.
