Abstract: Crohn’s disease (CD) is an inflammatory bowel disease. It affects thousands of people in the UK alone. Visceral fat hypertrophy is a characteristic radiological finding in CD. To date radiologists just describe it but are not yet able to provide more objective data regarding visceral fat volume and other various characteristics. This study aims to use various techniques in MRI and image processing to study visceral fat hypertrophy in CD and its relation to disease activity.
