The template attempts to provide a standard normal report than can be adjusted as necessary when there is minimal or no disease. View

There is no abnormal bowel wall enhancement in arterial, portal venous or delayed imaging. No restricted diffusion is seen. No ulceration is identified.

There is no evidence of penetrating disease. No fistula or abscess is identified.

There are no foci of stenosis or stricture. No dilated bowel or transition zone is identified.
