Computed tomography enterography and magnetic resonance enterography are essential in the evaluation and treatment of patients with Crohn's disease. As such, examination reporting must use standardized nomenclature for effective communication. This report documents an interdisciplinary consensus of the Society of Abdominal Radiology, the Society of Pediatric Radiology, and the American Gastroenterology Association on the computed tomography enterography/magnetic resonance enterography imaging findings and imaging-based morphologic phenotypes.
