The article focuses on the advancement of diagnostic imaging systems for inflammatory bowel disease. The wireless capsule endoscopy enables a painless and radiation free examination. The magnetic resonance imaging provides information about extraintestinal intra-abdominal structures. The computed tomography scan can depict segmental thickening, extraluminal lesions, and complications.
