Capsule Endoscopy

Capsule Endoscopy enables your doctor to examine the duodenum, jejunum, ileum of your small intestine. Your doctors will use a vitamin-pill sized video capsule as an endoscope, which has its own camera and light source. While the video capsule travels through your body, images are sent to a data recorder you will wear on a waist belt. Most patients consider the test comfortable.
