Bowel imaging: a reassessment. Part 2: CT and MRI

, : Bowel imaging: a reassessment. Part 2: CT and MRI. Rofo 179(7): 693-702

This is the second part of a review of bowel imaging. While the first part addressed conventional X-ray techniques and ultrasonography, the second part discusses the diagnostic features of computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) including virtual colonography and PET-CT in the diagnosis of bowel disorders. Indications, performance and the diagnostic impact of the different methods are presented and discussed in the context of competitive methods such as (capsule-)endoscopy.

Recent theory suggests that the geographic location of island radiations (local accumulation of species diversity due to cladogenesis) can be predicted based on island area and isolation. Crickets are a suitable group for testing these predictions...
