Capsule Endoscopy

At a Glance

First approved for use in 2001, the capsule endoscopy uses a pill-sized camera to view the lining of the esophagus and detect abnormalities. The images captured are in color and can be downloaded and interpreted by a physician.  While the camera is helpful in gaining an accurate picture of the esophagus, a traditional endoscopy is still required for gathering samples or removing polyps.
