A prone-angled compression radiographic view was compared with traditional radiographs in 17 patients with suspected Crohn disease. The angled view was clearly superior to the posteroanterior view in visualization of disease in the terminal ileum and small bowel and was superior to spot radiographs in six of 10 patients with disease in the small bowel. This view can be a valuable adjunct when small bowel loops overlap in the pelvic area.
