Magnetization transfer for the assessment of bowel fibrosis in patients with Crohn’s disease: initial experience

Abstract

To assess the feasibility of magnetization transfer (MT) imaging of the bowel wall in patients with Crohn’s disease (CD), and to evaluate its utility for the detection of intestinal fibrosis. In this prospective study, 31 patients (age 39.0 ± 13.2 years) with CD were examined in a 1.5T MR scanner. To establish a standard of reference, two independent… (More)
