|A semiquantitative score for the evaluation of CT enterography in patients with Crohn’s disease: correlation with endoscopic and clinical findings|
Aims and objectives
CT Enterography (CTE) is a fundamental tool for the management of patients with Crohn’s Disease (CD), allowing for a panoramic evaluation of disease extension and accurate detection of complications even in a sub-clinical stage [1; 2].
Imaging findings in CTE of patients with CD have been already described and correlated to clinical, endoscopic or laboratory data [3; 4]. However, a structured and standardized evaluation of CTE findings improves diagnostic accuracy and communication with referring physician [4-6]. Several scoring systems, based on different assumptions are available for the evaluation of disease activity, mainly used in experimental setting or in a well-defined clinical condition [7-9].
The aim of this study is to set a semi-quantitative score for the evaluation of inflammatory activity in CTE examinations of patients with CD, and its correlation with endoscopic and laboratory data.
