Capsule Endoscopy also known as wireless capsule endoscopy and pillcam endoscopy is performed as a screening and diagnostic tool in our Beverly Hills office.
What is Capsule Endoscopy?
Capsule Endoscopy is a new technology which allows your doctor to view and examine the gastrointestinal system. A Pillcam which is a pill sized video camera is swallowed and pictures are taken as the Pillcam moves down your mouth, esophagus, stomach, small intestine and colon. The pictures are simultaneously sent to a small video recorder which you hold or wear on your body via a belt. Your physician will then be able to review the pictures taken to diagnose and rule out tumors, ulcers, bleeds, gastritis, and other conditions.
