Validated SEMA-CD Score For Crohn’s Disease

J Adler et al. Inflamm Bowel Dis 2022; Open Access! Validating the Simplified Endoscopic Mucosal Assessment for Crohn’s Disease: A Novel Method for Assessing Disease Activity

“The SEMA-CD is scored by assigning a numerical value ranging from 0 (endoscopic remission) to 4 (severe disease) for each bowel region (ileum and colon). The overall colon is scored as a whole based on the most severe colonic segment.  The number of colonic segments with any degree of active disease is recorded, regardless of the severity of individual segments. The overall colon score is then multiplied by the number of involved colonic segments, and the result is added to the ileum score.”
