Functional imaging techniques enable physiological information to be derived, which, combined with high-resolution anatomical imaging, has the potential to improve the management of patients with intestinal disease. Two of the common pathologies where imaging has a substantial role in depicting disease extent, in staging disease, and assessing therapeutic response and/or disease relapse are cancer and inflammatory bowel disease. In these scenarios, functional imaging may augment assessment of disease activity, therapeutic response/non-response, as well as disease relapse by indicating physiological changes as a result of tumor, inflammation, or fibrosis.
