What is a Capsule Endoscopy?
Capsule endoscopy is a new technology designed to examine the small intestine. The test involves swallowing a capsule (about the size a large vitamin capsule) which takes multiple digital images of the small intestine. The images are transmitted to a data recorder on a sensor belt that is worn around the abdomen.
