Calprotectine levels?

Another question, is the level of calprotectine a measure to search for all sorts of inflammation or ONLY for chronic inflammations?

I have a level of 290 but that is normal because the doctor saw an inflammation in my rectum so maybe it's a normal inflammation instead of chronic or is that impossible with high calprotectine?
