Diagnosis

Capsule endoscopy has a higher diagnostic yield as compared with SBFT and CTE in detecting early small bowel lesions.([FOOTNOTE=Dionisio PM, Gurudu SR, Leighton JA, Leontiadis GI, Fleischer DE, Hara AK, et al. Capsule endoscopy has a significantly higher diagnostic yield in patients with suspected and established small-bowel Crohn’s disease: a meta-analysis. Am J Gastroenterol. 2010;105(6):1240-8.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=]),([FOOTNOTE=Leighton JA, Gralnek IM, Cohen SA, Toth E, Cave DR, Wolf DC, et al. Capsule endoscopy is superior to small-bowel follow-through and equivalent to ileocolonoscopy in suspected Crohn’s disease. Clin Gastroenterol Hepatol. 2014;12(4):609-15.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=]),([FOOTNOTE=Jensen MD, Nathan T, Rafaelsen SR, Kjeldsen J. Diagnostic accuracy of capsule endoscopy for small bowel Crohn’s disease is superior to that of MR enterography or CT enterography. Clin Gastroenterol Hepatol. 2011 Feb;9(2):124-9.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=])

Disease Management 

Mucosal healing is a strong predictor of fewer surgeries, long-term clinical remission, and fewer hospitalizations for Crohn's disease patients.([FOOTNOTE=Reinink AR, Lee TC, Higgins PD. Endoscopic mucosal healing predicts favorable clinical outcomes in inflammatory bowel disease: a meta-analysis. Inflamm Bowel Dis. 2016 Aug;22(8):1859-69.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=]) Capsule endoscopy can help visualize mucosal healing. 

HIGHER DIAGNOSTIC YIELD

Capsule endoscopy has a higher diagnostic yield than SBFT and CTE, in detecting early small bowel lesions.8-10 Capsule endoscopy has shown superiority to MRE for proximal small bowel disease.([FOOTNOTE=Kopylov U, Yung DE, Engel T, et al. Diagnostic yield of capsule endoscopy versus magnetic resonance enterography and small bowel contrast ultrasound in the evaluation of small bowel Crohn’s disease: systematic review and meta-analysis. Digestive and Liver Disease. 2017;49(8):854-86312.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=])

PATIENT-FRIENDLY

Unlike SBFT and CTE, capsule endoscopy does not increase cancer risk by exposing the patient to radiation.([FOOTNOTE=Ho IK, Cash BD, Cohen H, Hanauer SB, Inkster M, Johnson DA, et al. Radiation exposure in gastroenterology: improving patient and staff protection. Am J Gastroenterol. 2014;109(8):1180-94.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=]),([FOOTNOTE=Lauenstein TC, Umutlu L, Kloeters C, Aschoff AJ, Ladd ME, Kinner S. Small bowel imaging with MRI. Acad Radiol. 2012;19(11):1424-33.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=])

RELIABLE MONITORING STANDARDS

The Lewis Score provides established criteria for making an initial baseline assessment and evaluating disease activity over time.([FOOTNOTE=Cotter J, Castro F, Magalhaes J, Moreira M, Rosa B. Validation of the Lewis score for the evaluation of small-bowel Crohn’s disease activity. Endoscopy. 2015 Apr;47(4):330-5.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=])
