(PharmaNewsWire.Com, January 12, 2017 ) The Capsule Endoscope is a pill size device that comprises of batteries, camera, light source and transmitter. The capsule is swallowed by the patient and it takes the picture of the gastrointestinal tract which is then stored in a recording device attached to the patient body. These images are later reviewed by the physician and other healthcare professional to examine and collect useful information with respect to the disease condition.
The procedure is used to obtain high resolution images that may not be accessible through other endoscopy devices such as Gastroscope, Colonoscope and Duodenoscope. Capsule endoscopy is mainly used to diagnose the area of bleeding from small intestine, inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn’s disease), ulcers, polyps and tumors of the small intestine.
Capsule endoscopy is a minimally invasive procedure used to detect digestive disorders. Capsule endoscopy is a method to record the images of digestive tract which can be further used in diagnosis of the intestinal diseases. The procedure helps examine the lining of gastrointestinal tract which includes three portions of the small intestine namely duodenum, ileum and jejunum.
Thirty five percent of the population suffering ulcers suffer from serious complications and sometimes become life threatening. It is estimated that approximately 500,000 new ulcer cases are detected each year and at a time 5 million people are affected with ulcers in the United States.Therefore, for the early diagnosis and proper treatment capsule endoscope plays a pivotal role.
