An interview with doctor Jacques Cosnes, chief of Service Hépato-Gastroentérologie et Nutrition at Hôpital Saint Antoine in Paris, France. He discusses the natural course of Crohn's disease. He states that bowel damage can be assessed from cross-sectional imaging, computed tomography (CT) scans, and endoscopy. He says that the International Program to Develop New indexes in Crohn's Disease (IPNIC) was created in 2007 and he began developing the Léman score in 2006.
