Mucosal healing is associated with better outcomes in Crohn's disease (CD). Colonoscopy is invasive and poorly tolerated. Bowel ultrasound (US) is a noninvasive tool that increasingly is being used for CD assessment. We assessed the predictive role of baseline bowel US findings on disease course in a large prospective cohort of CD patients for 12 months.

Abstract

Mucosal healing is associated with better outcomes in Crohn's disease (CD). Colonoscopy is invasive and poorly tolerated. Bowel ultrasound (US) is a noninvasive tool that increasingly is being used for CD assessment. We assessed the predictive role of baseline bowel US findings on disease course in a large prospective cohort of CD patients for 12 months.
