Wireless Capsule Endoscopy (PillCAM)

The PillCAM endoscopy is a procedure that uses a very small, wireless camera to take pictures of your digestive tract and small intestine. The patient swallows a vitamin-size camera and thousands of pictures are taken. The images are sent to a small recording device that you wear on your body. The images will help your doctor provide you with useful information about your small intestine, such as detecting polyps, inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn's disease), ulcers and tumors.
