Abstract

To evaluate high-resolution graded compression ultrasound (GrUS) in small intestinal Crohn's disease (SICD), GrUS was performed in 250 patients with suspected Crohn's disease of the small intestine. The results were compared to clinical and colonoscopic data, enteroclysis, small bowel CT and 99mTc AgAb immunoscintigraphy. The sensitivity, of GrUS was 87% (160/187). Enteroclysis was more accurate, CT was more sensitive, but less specific, immunoscintigraphy had less sensitivity. In advanced and active disease abscesses were detected by CT and GrUS more frequently than with enteroclysis. Active and inactive fistulas were both reliably demonstrated by GruS. High Doppler flow measured in the SMA correlated with scintigraphic activity in 76%. The results of GrUS are similar to CT and immunoscintigraphy. Sonography detects surgical indications and may indicate activity, thus the decision of surgical intervention can be made and the effect of the therapy could be followed without endoscopy or enteroclysis.
