The diagnostic accuracy of SICUS is comparable to that of a radiologic examination, and is superior to that of TUS in detecting the presence, number, extension, and sites of small bowel lesions. These findings support the use of noninvasive SICUS for an initial investigation when small bowel disease is suspected and in the follow-up of CD patients.
