117 Diagnostic Yield of Capsule Endoscopy Versus Magnetic Resonance Enterography and Small Bowel Contrast Ultrasound for Evaluation of Small Bowel Crohn's Disease; a Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis

      Crohn’s disease (CD) involves the small bowel (SB) in at least 70% of those affected. Capsule endoscopy (CE), magnetic resonance enterography (MRE) and SB intestinal contrast ultrasound (SICUS) are the modalities of choice for SB evaluation. In CD, proximal SB disease is associated with worse long-term outcomes. This study aimed to compare the diagnostic yield (DY) of CE, MRE and SICUS in detection and monitoring of SB CD by performing a systematic review and meta-analysis of the available literature.
