I had a Colonoscopy last week which confirms I have inflammation at the mouth of terminal ileum and ileocaecal valve. Biopsis were taken of IC valve and random biopsies of colon. I waa told i now i need more tests done and an MRI. I thought a biopsy can diagnose crohns as that's the whole reason I had a Colonoscopy. The nurse said a biopsy is only to rule out cancer which she said there was no evidence of cancer in the colon which I already knew as my colon was normal. The inflammation is the small bowel. She said I also have ulceration and its either an infection or crohns. My question is can a biopsy diagnose crohns? And has anyone else had an MRI? Wats the procedure if they cant visualise a certain area of the bowel? I don't want to be really having this due to the radiation. And could this be something else other than infection or crohns for them to be sending me for an MRI. My bloods were normal which showed no active disease whatever that means.
