Multidetector-Row Computed Tomography Enterographic Assessment of the Ileal-Anal Pouch: Descriptive Radiologic Analysis With Endoscopic and Pathologic Correlation
Journal of Computer Assisted Tomography, 07/27/2012
Liszewski MC et al. – In patients who had ileal pouch anal anastomosis (IPAA) surgery, findings on multidetector–row computed tomography enterographic (MD–CTE) correlate positively with findings on pouch endoscopy and histopathology and are sensitive measures for pouch inflammation with high positive predictive value. Thus, MD–CTE can be a useful noninvasive test in the early evaluation of symptomatic patients.
