Capsule Endoscopy

PillCam ® SB

PillCam ® SB is the most widely used, patient-friendly tool for directly visualizing the small bowel to detect and monitor abnormalities. This procedure is the standard of care for small bowel evaluation, helping healthcare practitioners detect the presence of lesions and what may be the source of obscure GI bleeding, Crohn’s disease and iron deficiency anemia.
 
With PillCam ® SB, physicians can visualize the entire small bowel without putting their patients through a lengthy, uncomfortable procedure or having them undergo sedation. By simply swallowing a vitamin-sized capsule, physicians may detect and monitor lesions, ulcers, tumors, and bleeding within the small bowel.

PillCam ​® ESO

Initially cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 2004, PillCam ​® ESO is a patient-friendly tool for visualizing the esophagus. By visualizing the esophagus, physicians can monitor and detect abnormalities including esophageal varices, Barrett’s Esophagus and esophageal cancers.
