Capsule endoscopy is a pill sized camera examination of the small bowel.
It is useful in the evaluation of suspected small bowel diseases. It is particularly indicated for patients with unexplained internal bleeding or anaemia, and also gives valuable information in patients with other suspected small bowel disease such as Crohn's disease.
In contrast to endoscopy or colonoscopy, patients do not require difficult preparation or sedation. Patients swallow the camera, and during a short (day case) stay the images obtained are stored in a 'walkman sized' data recorder and subsequently examined by the consultant.
