PillCam Capsule Endoscopy

Visualizing the Entire Small Bowel

The small bowel, also known as the small intestine, connects the stomach to the large intestine.  The small bowel performs many functions including digestion and other metabolic processes.
 
Because conditions such as Crohn’s disease, obscure GI bleeding (OGIB) and Iron Deficiency Anemia (IDA) impairs the digestion process and disturbs normal absorption of nutrients, various symptoms may result that interfere with your daily life. 
 
With PillCam SB, for the first time your doctor is able to visualize small bowel abnormalities to detect and monitor lesions, ulcers, tumors or bleeding.  Armed with information, your physician can decide what may be the best treatment option for you.
