Wireless Capsule Endoscopy also known as "Pillcam", is a procedure that enables easy visualization of the entire small intestine. A vitamin sized capsule containing a camera, radio transmitter and battery is swallowed and sends over 50,000 images to a recorder belt as it travels naturally through the digestive tract. These images are then viewed and analyzed on a computer work station, resulting in an amazing view of the small bowel.
