View the capsule endoscopy promotional film

Small intestine capsule endoscopy is a wonder of modern science. You swallow an ingestible capsule which is equipped with a minature video camera at each end which screens for small bowel problems.

It has been safely used in more than 1 million people in the USA and now it is here in the UK. It is CE marked.

The capsule is about the size of a large vitamin pill. It is equipped with miniature colour video cameras (at each end), a battery and an LED light source, it measures 11.6mm X 31.5 mm. A high-resolution camera, which takes more than 20 frames per second, is located within a pill type structure.

The benefits to you are:

  • No anaesthetic
  • No needles
  • Safe
  • No risk of infection
  • No endoscope tube down your throat
  • You have been screened for small bowel problems
