OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the role of contrast-enhanced dynamic MRI in predicting the disease activity of Crohn's disease. MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty-eight patients in two hospitals who had clinically suspected exacerbation of Crohn's disease were included in this study. In three levels of thickened small-bowel wall, axial dynamic T1-weighted sequences were performed every 4-6 sec for a total duration of 2-3 min after contrast administration; static T1-weighted… CONTINUE READING
