Information @ a Glance

  • "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.
