OBJECTIVE. The cross-sectional characterization of duodenal abnormalities is plagued with inadequacy, a reflection of the meandering course of this segment of the bowel. We consider the imaging appearance of such abnormalities at MRI small-bowel follow-through, illustrating the typical manifestations of each pathologically confirmed condition.CONCLUSION. MRI small-bowel follow-through allows confident duodenal evaluation because of a combination of sufficient luminal distention and multiplanar versatility. Diseases of the duodenum may have a variety of manifestations at MRI small-bowel follow-through, the knowledge of which may aid in confident noninvasive patient diagnosis.
