OBJECTIVES The aim of the present study was to evaluate the diagnostic role of computed tomographic enterography (CTE) in distinguishing Crohn disease (CD) from intestinal tuberculosis (ITB). MATERIALS AND METHODS From January 2006 to August 2011, a total of 81 consecutive patients (64 patients with CD and 17 patients with ITB) who received CTE on the initial workup were included. In CTE, degree of bowel involvement (number and length), mural change (mural hyperenhancement, stratification… CONTINUE READING
