Mayo Clinic research scientists and doctors are continually developing new methods for diagnosing and treating ulcerative colitis. Mayo radiologists were instrumental in developing novel imaging techniques for bowel disorders, including CT enterography and MR enterography. Mayo Clinic researchers have found that using infliximab (Remicade) to treat ulcerative colitis can reduce the need for surgery. Mayo colorectal surgeons helped develop minimally invasive surgical techniques for ulcerative colitis. Researchers are studying new biomarkers that can help guide treatment decisions.
