Imagine a completely non-invasive device that can detect polyps inside the colon. It’s real, and it’s called the PillCAM. The PillCAM is an endoscopy camera about the size of a large vitamin. Once swallowed, this innovative capsule endoscopy gives your GI doctor clear images of your colon. It doesn’t get any easier or more patient-friendly than that! Let the team at Gastrointestinal Specialists help you find out if the PillCAM endoscopy is right for you.
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.
