Dr. Mutlu shares how inflammatory bowel disease is diagnosed.

Dr. Mutlu:
Inflammatory bowel disease is typically diagnosed by endoscopy or colonoscopy where we take biopsies of the tissue, and we examine it under the microscope, and we see typical changes under the microscope. And if the person has the right type of history of their symptoms and if they have the right background for it, then we could make a diagnosis of the disease based on our endoscopic findings, based on our pathologic findings, as well as the person’s symptoms.
