Abstract

In the past decade, new therapeutic agents have been developed that permit gastroenterologists to treat virtually all forms of Crohn's disease. The success of these treatments depends on an accurate diagnosis of the nature and extent of disease. Fortunately, radiologists now possess a powerful arsenal of imaging techniques to guide the choice of therapy. This article discusses the usefulness of both traditional and newer imaging techniques in the management of Crohn's disease and its various clinical presentations.
