MRI and MR enteroscopy are other high definition imaging modalities that localize tumor, its boundaries, dimensions in small intestine. They are very helpful in staging the tumor.


  • MRI and MRI enteroscopy are other advance modalities to diagnose and stage small intestinal cancers.[1]
  • MR enteroclysis may help distinguish between benign and malignant neoplasms.[2]
  • It may localize small intestine tumors very well and it is very useful for tumor staging.
  • MR enteroclysis may also help in surgical planning, to define boundaries and extent of tumor that may not be assessed by histological evaluation, particularly if laparoscopy is considered.[3]
