Although much radiologic literature has focused on the short-term post-operative complications associated with ileal pouches, as the number of patients with long-term pouches has grown, there is increasing realization of the functional deficits that may occur long after pouch creation. Dynamic pouch imaging using fluoroscopy and MRI can provide assessment of the underlying causes of symptomatic pouch dysfunction and can provide critical insight to the management of this complex patient population. In this paper, we provide an overview of the unique problems encountered in patients with long-term ileal pouches, and provide an overview of the techniques, interpretation, and reporting for fluoroscopic and MR pouch defecography.
