The PillCam™ Crohn’s capsule enables direct visualization of the small bowel and colon with innovative imaging technology. The capsule features allow you to achieve comprehensive coverage for efficient disease management.
Patients undergoing capsule endoscopy with the PillCam™ COLON 2 or PillCam™ Crohn’s system may wear the PillCam™ Crohn’s and COLON 2 sensor belt. The belt is worn around the patient’s waist over a single layer of clothing and can be adjusted to achieve the most comfortable fit.
The PillCam™ sensor array features an 8-lead sensor, which is placed on the patient’s body to receive transmission data from the capsule.
The PillCam™ recorder 3 is a recording device worn by the patient during the capsule endoscopy procedure. Following the procedure, the physician downloads the images from the PillCam™ recorder 3 for interpretation.
The PillCam™ patency capsule is a dissolvable capsule that provides a simple and convenient way to verify adequate patency of the gastrointestinal tract prior to capsule endoscopy. In patients with known or suspected strictures, a PillCam™ patency capsule may be given to help physicians assess if capsule endoscopy is a good option.
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=])
