Pillcam Capsule Endoscopy

A pill-like capsule with a camera inside is swallowed and takes thousands of pictures that are transmitted wirelessly to a recording device worn around the waist. After the recording device is returned to the office, a physician reviews these images by looking at the middle part of the small intestine that cannot be examined through an EGD or colonoscopy. It’s typically used to look for obscure sources of bleeding, Crohn’s disease or other abnormalities of the small intestine.
