A definitive diagnosis of CD was based on the results of multiple examinations, such as colonoscopy, small bowel capsule endoscopy, enteroscopy, gastroscope, computed tomography, enterography, histopathological examination, and blood tests (including routine blood examination, erythrocyte sedimentation rate [ESR], C-reactive protein [CRP], and autoimmune-related antibodies).
If the condition seems to be more consistent with Crohn's disease, the doctor will perform a colonoscopy to evaluate the end of the small intestine, the terminal ileum, and may also perform an MRI or CT enterography (imaging performed with contrast materials), upper endoscopy (a flexible tube with a camera and light used to take pictures of the digestive tract), and/or capsule endoscopy (a tiny wireless camera inside a small capsule that is swallowed and later passed through a bowel movement).
MRI enterography revealed multiple small bowel strictures with dilated ileal and jejunal loops," the BMJ report read.
CT enterography study with contrast injection in the arterial phase showed a suspicious soft tissue lesion containing multiple tiny spots of calcification and vascular components in the proximal part of the jejunum (figure 1).
CT enterography and enteroclysis are two advanced cross-sectional modalities that improved the sensitivity in detected small bowel tumors.
Most likely these conditions will first be recognized by multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) supported by sonography, contrast enterography and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
153) Recent studies incorporated the findings of computed tomography enterography such as intestinal fistulas, target signs, comb signs--a prominence of vasa recta in the mesentery--and lymph node enhancement, and showed an improved diagnostic accuracy.
magnetic resonance enterography signs Pharmacol Ther
Objective: To compare the efficacy of computed tomography enterography and magnetic resonance enterography in diagnosing small intestinal diseases.
A 53-year-old man had a right lower pole branched calculus, while undergoing computed tomography (CT) enterography as part of follow-up for a long standing Crohn's disease.
It also has new images and expanded discussions of high-resolution CT, lung nodule assessment and lung cancer screening, CT pulmonary embolism diagnosis, CT enterography, CT enteroclysis, CT colonography, and optimizing CT techniques in musculoskeletal diagnosis, in addition to updated descriptions and illustrations of normal anatomy and incidental findings, and updated disease classifications, including those for pulmonary adenocarcinoma, diffuse lung diseases, and pancreatic lesions.
3) Imaging modalities for CD include abdominal radiography, barium contrast studies, computed tomography (CT) scan of abdomen, CT enterography or magnetic resonance enterography, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the pelvis, abdominal and/or endoscopic ultrasonography and nuclear imaging.
