Contrast radiology, computed tomography and ultrasonography in detecting internal fistulas and intra-abdominal abscesses in Crohn's disease: a prospective comparative study.

Giovanni Maconi, Gianluca M Sampietro, Fabrizio Parente, Giovanni Pompili, Antonio Russo, Massimo Cristaldi, Giancarlo Arborio, Sandro Ardizzone, Giovanni Matacena, Angelo Maria Taschieri, Gabriele Bianchi Porro,

<h4>Objective</h4>Accurate assessment of intestinal complications of Crohn's disease (CD) is extremely important, both in clinical practice and in trials. The accuracy of radiographic and ultrasonographic diagnosis of internal fistulae and abscesses complicating CD is still debated and requires further investigation. We compared ultrasonography (US) and contrast radiography in detecting intestinal ... Read more >>
