Abstract

CT enterography (CTE) is a technique using neutral oral contrast, intravenous contrast and thin cut, multiplanar CT acquisitions to optimize small bowel imaging. One of the primary indications for CTE is the detection and evaluation of Crohn's disease. This article summarizes the advantages/ disadvantages, scanning technique, imaging findings, performance and pitfalls of CTE for the evaluation of Crohn's disease.
