The PillCam is used to diagnose disorders of the small bowel by just swallowing a pill. It is a safe and simple way to image your entire small bowel mucosa. The PillCam does not require sedation or inserting tubes into your digestive tract and aside from fasting for 10 hours before the procedure it requires little preparation. The PillCam is also disposable and naturally passes through your body.
This noninvasive test is used to diagnose Crohn’s disease and other abnormalities in the small bowel and colon.
