Capsule endoscopy is a procedure that takes pictures of your digestive tract using a tiny wireless camera. A capsule endoscopy camera is housed within a vitamin-sized capsule that you swallow. The camera takes thousands of pictures as the capsule travels through your digestive tract, which are transmitted to a recorder you wear on a belt around your waist.
Capsule endoscopy is used to diagnose conditions that affect the small intestine, which cannot be easily reached using traditional endoscopy procedures. The capsule endoscopy procedure involves swallowing a small, wireless camera capsule that takes pictures of the digestive tract as it travels through the body. The camera takes thousands of images that are transmitted to a recorder worn by the patient, which are then reviewed by a doctor. Capsule endoscopy is often used to diagnose conditions such as Crohn's disease, celiac disease, small intestine tumors, and bleeding in the small intestine. It is a non-invasive procedure that does not require sedation or anesthesia, making it a safer and more comfortable alternative to traditional endoscopy procedures.
