"Capsule endoscopy” known as
“intelligent capsule Gastrointestinal Endoscopy System,” also known as
the “Medical wireless endoscope."
- Capsule Endoscopy is
a term used to describe a miniature capsule used to record images
through the digestive tract for use in medicine.
- Standard endoscopic
and colonoscopic exams view only small amounts of the proximal and
distal ends of the small bowel. Push enteroscopy was the first step in
the endoscopic evaluation of the intestine.
- Computerized analysis
of the Wireless Capsule Endoscopy (WCE) recordings is feasible and
reduces the human labor involved in the interpretation of WCE images.
- ROC analysis is used
for the detection of abnormalities in the wireless capsule endoscopy
images. The results of the ROC analysis have shown that the proposed
method is effective to assist in identifying the lesions.
- The process of
capsule endoscopy image analysis has not been standardized with respect
to the selection and training of individual readers, determination of
the gold standard to which fi ndings are compared to assess sensitivity
and false positive rates or reporting of findings and diagnoses.
- Capsule endoscopy is
used mainly to try and pinpoint bleeding in hidden areas in the small
bowel. Capsule endoscopy is also useful for tracking small bowel tumours
and obscure abdominal pain.
- Capsule endoscopy
utilizes a wireless video camera, small enough to swallow, to perform
painless endoscopic imaging of the small intestine.
- Capsule endoscopy
allows examination of the small intestine, which is otherwise
inaccessible by means of traditional endoscopic methods.
- Wireless capsule
endoscopy (CE) is a simple non-invasive technique that allows
examination of the entire small bowel.10 The technique has been shown to
be safe in the evaluation of Obscure gastrointestinal bleeding (OGIB)
- The Capsule Endoscopy
technique is a new form of gastrointestinal endoscopy which utilizes a
small capsule which includes a camera, leds, batteries and transmitter.
- New product releases
and the ongoing adoption of existing capsule products will cause the US
capsule endoscopy market to skyrocket to over $370 million by 2011.
- The newer capsule
endoscopy market is expected to generate more than $180 million in
revenue in the United States alone by 2009, according to the Millennium
Research Group, up from just $40 million in 2004.
