In brief: Chrohn's Disease

Colonoscopy and sigmoidoscopy allow the doctor to directly view the large intestine, which is the lower part of the digestive tract.
These techniques can often provide the most accurate information about the intestines. They may be better at detecting small ulcers or inflammation than other techniques. They can be used to assess the severity of any inflammation. Colonoscopy is the most important.
