Adaptive frame rate technology

The PillCam™ SB 3 system optimizes tissue coverage with the most advanced capsule endoscopy technology.

  • Capture image rate changes from 2 to 6 fps when the system determines the capsule is moving more quickly.
  • Increased frame rate flexibility maximizes mucosa coverage and supports tissue acquisition that is uniquely suited to each patient’s motility.
  • High-quality imaging supports greater diagnostic confidence—In one survey, 100% of GIs ranked the image sharpness, natural tissue colors, balanced illumination, and overall image quality provided by the PillCam™ SB 3 system higher than that of the previous generation.3
  • Proprietary software algorithms enable smarter video compilation that is 40% more efficient than the PillCam™ SB 2 system.2
