Imaging Improves Diagnosis of Chronic GI Ischemia

March 7, 2011

Visualization of the gastrointestinal arteries and evaluation of mucosal perfusion substantially improve the diagnosis of chronic gastrointestinal ischemia.

The diagnosis of chronic gastrointestinal ischemia remains a clinical challenge. According to data published in Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology, clinical features alone have a limited value to assess chronic gastrointestinal ischemia correctly. Visualization of the gastrointestinal arteries and evaluation of mucosal perfusion substantially improve the diagnosis of chronic gastrointestinal ischemia. The strongest diagnostic contribution comes from mucosal perfusion assessment.
