Abstract

We herein report the first use, to our knowledge, of computed tomography-ultrasound (US) fusion technique to follow-up Crohn's disease complications. This novel technique employs real-time reconstructed fusion of previously obtained tomographic images onto the US image software, allowing accurate bedside spatial resolution, localization, and lesion characterization by US.
