This study aimed to demonstrate that Magnetic resonance enterography global score (MEGS) shows equally values in pediatric crohn's patients and had comparable diagnostic efficacy comparing with other MRE scores. 52 juvenile Crohn patients were included, and MEGS, SES-CD and eAIS of the terminal ileum were calculated. The results show that for both endoscopically defined and histologically defined active inflammation and ulcerative lesions MEGS have high diagnostic accuracy, are consisting with other studies. The results provided in the current study suggest that MR may be considered as an alternative to endoscopy.
