Resumen

O'BRIEN S, Andrés. MAGNETIC RESONANCE DEFECOGRAPHY. Rev. chil. radiol. [online]. 2010, vol.16, n.1, pp.11-16. ISSN 0717-9308.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-93082010000100004.

The term disorders of the anorectal function encompasses a group of diseases commonly present in gastroenterological consultation; conditions that have a significant impact on patients' quality of life. Imaging studies, mainly defecography, are essential for the diagnosis of these diseases. Taking into account that there is overlap of several of them in the same patient, some may be underdiagnosed when relying solely on anamnesis and physical examination. Given the multiplanar capability of MRI, visualization ofperirectal soft tissue, its lowest invasiveness in relation with other studies and the absence of ionizing radiation or barium, MRI defecography has been installed as an imaging modality widely used in our milieu, replacing the classical defecography performed under fluoroscopy.

Palabras clave : Defecography; Constipation; MRI.
