ABSTRACT
Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) patients undergo rodiological investigations for diagnostic purposes, to define the extent of disease and for detecting complications. The economic impact of IBD on radiological services needs to be examined. The article studies all radiological procedures undergone by IBD patients over a 5 year period. The study revealed that IBD patients pose a considerable economic burden on radiological services. Further it has been found that 65% of the patients will still also require endoscopic investigations.
