Abstract

CT enterography is a new imaging modality that has distinct advantages over conventional CT, wireless capsule endoscopy, and barium examination. CT enterography is noninvasive and allows rapid mapping of disease activity before endoscopy and in cases where the endoscope cannot reach the diseased segment. CT enterography is readily available, is operator independent, and allows evaluation of extraenteric complications of small bowel disease. This article describes the latest techniques and applications of CT enterography.
