Overview

Visualize. Assess. Track Crohn’s disease over time.

The PillCam™ Crohn’s system is the only product that visualizes the small bowel and colonic mucosa directly and noninvasively — with one procedure.

That may mean greater clinical and economic efficiency for you, your patients, and your practice.

The PillCam™ Crohn's capsule gives you a 336-degree view via two camera heads (168° per head), which helps to visualize both the small bowel and colonic mucosa.([FOOTNOTE=User manual (DOC-2926-01). Page 220. August 2017.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=])

Pan-intestinal imaging for a pan-intestinal disease

The PillCam™ Crohn’s system enables you to efficiently assess your patient’s Crohn’s disease and how well it is responding to treatment.

Efficient Assessment of Disease Activity

Since disease activity doesn’t always correlate to how your patient feels,([FOOTNOTE=Baert F, Moortgat L, Van Assche G, Caenepeel P, Vergauwe P, De Vos M, et al. Mucosal healing predicts sustained clinical remission in patients with early-stage Crohn’s disease. Gastroenterol. 2010 Feb;138(2):463.468.

The PillCam™ Crohn’s system enables you to efficiently assess your patient’s Crohn’s disease and how well it is responding to treatment. Here’s how:

  • Compare images and disease progression over time
  • Catalog prescriptions
  • See severity by location
  • Tailor your approach according to your patient’s specific disease state
  • Assess mucosal healing — a hallmark of Crohn’s disease remission
