Background

Magnetic resonance enterography (MRE) is an imaging technique that has evolved in the last 15-20 years. It involves the use of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to assess the small bowel. The advantages of this technique are that MRE uses no ionising radiation...

Background

Susceptibility-weighted imaging (SWI) is (mainly) a neuroimaging technique, which uses tissues magnetic susceptibility differences to generate a unique contrast, different from that of proton density (PD), T1, T2, T2* and DWI (fig. 1).

Fig. 1 Susceptibility-we...

BACKGROUND ON DWI -

Diffusion is the net movement of molecules or atoms from a region of high concentration with high chemical potential to a region of low concentration with low chemical potential.

Diffusion-Weighted Imaging (DWI) is used to evaluate the random, thermal...
