Agreement was moderate for the presence of abscess (k=0.46 95% CI 0.14-1.00), acute mucosal inflammatory changes (k=0.55, 95% CI 0.19-0.90) and fibrotic changes (k=0.50, 95% CI 0.04-0.95). There was no significant difference in the mean estimated stricture length between MRE and SICUS. Conclusion SICUS compares favourably with MRE in the diagnosis of complications in patients with Crohn's disease. This imaging technique is particularly useful in patients with stricturing (Montreal B2) disease.
