Capsule endoscopy is a medical procedure which allows your physician to visualize parts of your gastrointestinal tract. The GI tract is a part of the digestive system and extends from the mouth to the anus.
The PillCam SB Platform is an efficient, patient-friendly, and clinically-proven system consisting of PillCam video capsules for the esophagus and small bowel. More than 1,000,000 patients worldwide have benefited from the PillCam video capsules.
PillCam SB is the most widely used, patient-friendly tool for visualization of the entire small bowel and is the standard of care for detecting small bowel abnormalities. The clinical value of PillCam SB as a tool in detecting small bowel abnormalities is demonstrated by more than 1,200 peer-reviewed clinical papers. Most insurance carriers require a preliminary Colonoscopy and Upper Endoscopy prior to the PILLCAM SB service.
