Figure 6: Ileocaecal Crohn's disease in a 17-year-old girl. (a) The inflamed caecum (arrows) is thickened and hyperintense compared to the psoas muscle in the half-Fourier acquisition single-shot turbo spin-echo imaging image. (b) The post-gadolinium axial volumetric interpolated breath-hold examination image shows layered enhancement (from the inside moving outwards: enhancing mucosa, non-enhancing hypointense submucosal oedema and enhancing muscular layer and serosa). (c) The mucosa is more restricted than the other layers on the axial diffusion-weighted image. All of these findings are suggestive of active inflammation in the caecum.
