Small intestine is not accessible using traditional endoscopy equipment. Small Endoscopy Video Camera has been developed to allow physicians examine this segment of the Intestinal Tract.
Small Capsule ( the size of the large pill) is swallowed by patient on the morning of the test.
The capsule is equipped with a miniature video camera and light source. It travels painlessly through your entire digestive tract. It captures images quickly and sends them to a recording device you wear during the procedure.
And, unless your doctor tells you otherwise, you can move around freely throughout the examination. Camera is disposable and passes naturally through your body.
