Capsule Endoscopy is a procedure used to view the small intestine. It begins with the patient swallowing a "pill" containing a tiny camera that takes two pictures a second as it travels through the patient's esophagus, stomach and small bowel. (Some people refer to the device as a Pill Cam or Camera Pill.) During the time the camera is passing though the body, the patient wears a small data recorder around his/her waist. The camera transmits pictures out to the data recorder. After eight hours, the patient returns to their doctor's office where the images on the data recorder are downloaded to a computer. (The "pill" camera passes through the patient's large intestines until it is excreted in the stool--it is not recovered). The doctor will read the pictures looking for areas of inflammation and/or bleeding.
