Evaluation and management of Crohns disease is often clinically difficult, but advances in magnetic resonance enterography (MRE) have helped to overcome a number of obstacles. Specifically, MRE is able to accurately characterize a small bowel stenosis and differentiate one caused by active inflammation from one caused by chronic fibrotic changes, which is an important distinction clinically. This Educational E-Poster will provide radiologists and trainees with the information needed to confidently evaluate a small bowel stenosis on MRE, including an overview of the literature, an introduction of the mnemonic device STENOSIS, and sample cases to illustrate all salient features.
