The researchers aimed to evaluate sensitivity, specificity, and accuracy of three different imaging methods, specifically, magnetic resonance enterography (MRE), small-intestine contrast US (SICUS), and capsule endoscopy (CE) in the diagnosis of pediatric small bowel in Chohn’s disease. In the study titled, "Magnetic resonance enterography, small-intestine contrast US, and capsule endoscopy to evaluate the small bowel in pediatric Crohn’s disease: a prospective, blinded, comparison study" recently published in the journal Gastrointestinal Endoscopy, the research team compared each imaging method with a standard method for upper small-bowel imaging, and with ileocolonoscopy for the terminal ileum. All patients participating the study had ileocolonoscopy
