A new study in the Academic Radiology Journal has hopeful news for those who suffer from Crohn’s disease.
As some of you may or may not know, Crohn’s disease is a chronic condition which causes inflammation and subsequent cramping in the GI tract. It usually occurs where the small intestine meets the large intestine. While not necessarily deadly, this disease can be debilitating for everyday life; there is no cure right now, though treatment does relieve symptoms.
In this study, CT and MRI scans were measured for accuracy in diagnosing Crohn’s disease. The results so far show that CT and MRI are both highly accurate in diagnosing; MRI may be used more often because it is radiation free. This will allow for quicker diagnoses and subsequent quicker treatment.
At Sound Imaging, we are always happy to see how imaging helps people find their diagnosis and subsequent treatment. We also know getting a scan can be an unpleasant experience, regardless of its accuracy. This is why MRI accessories are so crucial to making the patient experience better. MRI Visors, the portable MRI video goggle system, and MRI Stereo, the two-way communication and music system, are easy solutions to improve patient care.
