Is Crohn's disease hard to diagnose? Colonoscopy EGD are norm beside minor inflamed cecum and ileum. Dr wants to do capsule test. So many tests!
Some times it can be: Most crohns affect the terminal ileum as well as the cecum. However as crohns can affect any part of the gi tract, a capsule endoscopy is helpful to find other lesions. My preference is to do a ct or MRI enterography, especially in an untreated crohns patient who I suspect may have tight areas (strictures). Hope this helps! ...Read more
