Crohn’s disease (CD) is a chronic inflammatory bowel disorder that can occur in any section of the gastrointestinal tract, commonly affecting the small intestine, especially the ileum. Colonoscopy used as the gold standard for assessing disease activity, but its invasiveness limits the use. We aimed to assess inflammatory activity of CD patients by using Intravoxel incoherent motion diffusion-weighted imaging (IVIM-DWI), and found IVIM-DWI may serve as a promising method for noninvasive detecting and monitoring the activity of CD.
