PURPOSE To determine if neovascularization associated with Crohn disease, as detected with Doppler ultrasonography (US), reflects clinical disease activity. MATERIALS AND METHODS A devised measurement, vessel density, was estimated with color Doppler US. Patients with Crohn disease underwent clinical and laboratory assessment in which the Crohn disease activity index was measured; patients underwent abdominal US the same week. Color Doppler US was performed by using a 7.5-10.0- or 8.0-12.0… CONTINUE READING
