Aim. The aim of our prospective study was to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of MR Enteroclysis (MRE) to assess the extension and complications of Crohn's Disease (CD) in comparison with conventional enteroclysis (CE). Materials and methods. The study comprised 30 consecutive patients affected by Crohn's disease (18 women and 12 men; age range 16-76, mean age 40.6 years), who underwent conventional and MR enteroclysis. The MR enteroclysis protocol includes three sequences: coronal and axial FIESTA and ssFSE sequences and T1-3D-FSPGR sequences before and after intravenous injection of gadolinium, acquired after administration of 1.6-21 of iso-osmolar polyethylene glycol solution via a nasojejunal catheter. Two radiologists blindly scored each sequence for opacification of the lumen, small bowel distension and image quality and evaluated the following parameters: presence of wall ulcers, pseudopolyps, stenoses and fistulae. Results. The accuracy of the FIESTA sequence was significantly higher (p
