Low-Radiation-Dose Modified Small Bowel CT for Evaluation of Recurrent Crohn's Disease
(a) 42-year-old male with Crohn’s disease. Raw supine, axial images acquired at 1.25 mm slices prior to reconstruction on the 3D workstation. (b) The 7 mm thick, axial-reconstructed MBCT oblique-axial reformats demonstrate an enteroenteric fistula (arrow). There is also a skip lesion in small bowel on the left side of the pelvis (white arrows heads). (c) Follow-up imaging 1 year later demonstrates that this enteroenteric fistulous connection persists (arrow). On the current study, the skip lesion seen previously demonstrates increasing thickness indicating worsening of disease (arrowheads).
