Small bowel imaging comparison

Hi guys,
I've been diagnosed with CD on this May, recently I've been experiencing symptoms (from what I've read from your great threads in this forum) am suspecting a stricture/narrowing.

Am passing normal sise stools, and no pencil sise ones, hence that may probably indicates that my stricture/narrowing problem, is for sure, is not in my colon and it is some where in my small bowel.

My question is: what is the most reliable/accurate imaging procedure (SBFT, CT, MRI,...) to give me the most accurate answers (to show narrowing/inflammation/scar tissues if any...)

I don't have medical insurance, so i don't want to go through a series of expensive tests.
Thanx in advance
