Objectives: To assess the predictive value of IUS in children with IBD.
Design: A prospective longitudinal cohort study.
Setting: Institute of Gastroenterology, Nutrition and Liver Diseases, Schneider Children's Hospital.
Participants: Children 2 years to 17 years (up to 200 patients) who have been diagnosed with either CD or UC.
Main outcome measures: The changes in bowel wall thickness, assessed by IUS, during 2-year follow-up according to therapeutic regimen.
Secondary outcome measures: Correlation of sonographic measures to clinical disease indices, serum inflammatory and other laboratory markers, fecal calprotectin, endoscopic and other radiologic measures performed as part of routine care.

|Official Title:||Intestinal Ultrasound Role in the Management of Pediatric Inflammatory Bowel Disease: A Prospective Longitudinal Cohort Study|
|Actual Study Start Date :||July 1, 2017|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date :||May 2020|
|Estimated Study Completion Date :||June 2020|
- Device: Intestinal ultra-sound monitoring
Children diagnosed with either CD or UC will be enrolled at diagnosis or at any time point during follow-up. Patients' characteristics will be retrieved from their medical files including demographic details, disease phenotype, endoscopic and radiologic variables, anthropometric measures, laboratory evaluation, complication and therapeutic regimens. At enrollment and every 3 months for a total period of 2 years all patients will perform intestinal US during regular clinic visits. All other measures including laboratory exams, anthropometric measurements and disease activity indices (either PCDAI for CD or PUCAI for UC) will be performed as part of standard of care.
