Saw my GI today and prefers I no longer have any more CT scans especially since I have had 20 in a 1 year time frame.   Me suggests a new test a MRI enterography.  he said you still drink a contrast dye but there is no barium in it and then it is followed by water and then they also do an IV contrast but unlike the CTE it is MRI since CTs are showing more and more to have cancerous effects on patients especially the more you have.  He said this test can show fistula tracts clearer than any other test out there.  There is onlyt 1 doc in RI doing this type of test atm but RI is a small state but this may be a good alternative for many other CD patients as well thought I would pass this info along
