Capsule endoscopy is a procedure used to record internal images of the gastrointestinal tract for use in medical diagnosis.

Newer developments are also able to take biopsies and release medication at specific locations of the entire gastrointestinal tract [1]. The capsule aka pill cam is similar in shape to a standard pharmaceutical capsule , although a little larger, and contains a tiny camera and an array of LEDs powered by a battery.

After a patient swallows the capsule, it passes along the gastrointestinal tract taking a number of images per second which are transmitted wirelessly to an array of receivers connected to a portable recording device carried by the patient. The primary use of capsule endoscopy is to examine areas of the small intestine that cannot be seen by other types of endoscopy such as colonoscopy or esophagogastroduodenoscopy EGD. Esophagogastroduodenoscopy EGD , employs a camera attached to a long flexible tube to view the upper portion of the gastrointestinal tract, namely the esophagus , the stomach and the beginning of the first part of the small intestine called the duodenum , and a colonoscope , inserted through the rectum , can view the colon and the distal portion of the small intestine, the terminal ileum , however, these two types of endoscopy cannot visualize the majority of the middle portion of the small intestine.

Capsule endoscopy is used to examine parts of the gastrointestinal tract that cannot be seen with other types of endoscopy. It is useful when disease is suspected in the small intestine, and can sometimes be used to find the site of gastrointestinal bleeding or the cause of unexplained abdominal pain, such as Crohn's disease. However, unlike EGD or colonoscopy it cannot be used to treat pathology that may be discovered. Common reasons for using capsule endoscopy include diagnosis of unexplained bleeding, iron deficiency, or abdominal pain, searching for polyps , ulcers and tumors of small intestine, and diagnosis of inflammatory bowel disease.

The collected images are then transferred to a computer for display, review and diagnosis. As of [update] research was targeting additional sensing mechanisms and localization and motion control systems to enable new applications for the technology, for example, drug delivery. Wireless energy transmission was also being investigated as a way of providing a continuous energy source for the capsule.

As of there were a number of manufacturers. Capsule endoscopy is considered to be a very safe method to determine an unknown cause of a gastrointestinal bleed. In a review of 22, cases, the capsule was retained 1.

Capsule endoscopy

During a capsule endoscopy procedure, you swallow a tiny camera that's about the size of a large vitamin pill. The capsule contains lights to illuminate your digestive system, a camera to take images and an antenna that sends those images to a recorder you wear on a belt. Capsule endoscopy is a procedure that uses a tiny wireless camera to take pictures of your digestive tract. A capsule endoscopy camera sits inside a vitamin-size capsule you swallow. As the capsule travels through your digestive tract, the camera takes thousands of pictures that are transmitted to a recorder you wear on a belt around your waist.

M2A Capsule Endoscopy. A Breakthrough Diagnostic Tool for Small Intestine Imaging

It is estimated that 19 million people in the United States may suffer from diseases related to the small intestine, including obscure bleeding, irritable bowel syndrome, Crohns disease, chronic diarrhea, and cancer. Current diagnostic methods, including push enteroscopy and radiology, produce historically low diagnostic yield. In addition to potentially higher diagnostic yields, it provides a noninvasive diagnostic alternative where none previously existed. This site needs JavaScript to work properly.
