Description
"PillCam® SB is a widely used, patient-friendly tool for directly visualizing the small bowel to detect and monitor abnormalities like Crohn's disease and obscure gastrointestinal bleeding. This animation provides a look at how the capsule travels through the entire digestive tract capturing images and sending them to a recording device worn by the patient during the procedure."

The capsule endoscopy technology was originally developed by Given Imaging International, an Israeli medical technology company. They also developed other products such as PillCam ESO and PillCam COLON. The company was acquired in 2015 by Medtronic.
