Small bowel disease and crohn’s disease are inflammatory disorders occurs in bowel wall. MR enterography (MRE) of small bowel is becoming gold standard imaging modality in the diagnosis of small bowel diasease and crohn’s disease. This study was performed to assess the sensitivity and apecificity of MR enterography in the diagnosis of small bowel disease and crohn’s disease. A total 100 cases with clinical findings and symptoms of small bowel disease were recruited. The radiological examination was performed by using 1.5 tesla MRI using abdomen coil in supine position & instructed for breathing instructions. Among 100 participants, 56% cases had abnormal and 44% had normal findings by MRE enterography. In the MRE diagnosed abnormal cases, 32.1% cases had tuberculosis to intestine, 28.5% cases diagnosed with crohn’s diasese, 7.14% had small bowel neoplasms, 8.9% cases had ulcerative colitis and 7.14% cases had large bowel disease. The sensitivity and specificity for MR enterography in the diagnosis of crohn’s disese was 77.77% and 97.56% respectively. MR enterography is the efficient non invasive diagnostic modality in the diagnosis of suspected intra luminal, parietal and extra luminal small bowel disease and crohn’s disease.
