Brief Summary:
To determine if patient satisfaction, participation, and image quality improves with flavored oral contrast for MR enterography.

Condition or disease
Taste, Altered

Detailed Description:
Volumen is an oral contrast agent used in MR imaging of the bowel. It has an unpleasant taste which makes it difficult for pediatric patients, especially sick pediatric patients, to drink. There are other contrast materials used in the department that are flavored to improved patient participation. The investigators hope to determine a way to flavor Volumen to improve patient participation. In doing so, the investigators hope to also improve patient satisfaction as well as imaging quality.
