ABSTRACT
Small bowel barium study (SBBS) is the standard way of imaging the small intestine in order to exclude or establish the diagnosis of Crohn's enteritis. However, the yield is generally low and the radiation exposure not insignificant. Furthermore, the most frequent site of inflammation in such patients, the terminal ileum, can be assessed in details during ileoscopy at colonoscopy. The aim of this study was to evaluate the diagnostic yield of SBBS in patients who have had a normal ileoscopy and on unremarkable colonoscopy.
