A camera inside a capsule that captures images at a frame rate of 2 to 6 frames per second (fps) based on capsule speed as it travels through the small bowel.
Patients undergoing capsule endoscopy with the PillCam™ SB 3 system may wear the sensor belt to receive transmission data from PillCam™ SB 3 capsule. 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™ SB 3 sensor array features an 8-lead sensor, which is placed on the patient’s body to receive transmission data from the PillCam™ SB 3 capsule.
The PillCam™ recorder 3 is a recording device with a built in real-time viewer, which is worn by the patient during the PillCam™ procedure. Following the procedure, the physician downloads the images from the PillCam™ recorder 3 for interpretation.
The PillCam™ patency capsule is used to verify an unobstructed small bowel prior to capsule endoscopy.
A smaller version of the sensor array, which is ideal for pediatric or smaller patients.
The PillCam™ SB 3 system allows for direct visualization of the small bowel, supporting greater confidence when monitoring lesions3 that may be related to Crohn’s disease, obscure bleeding, or iron deficiency anemia. The system features advanced optics and imaging designed to deliver exceptional images of the mucosa.
This system includes innovative features like adaptive frame rate technology, which supports image acquisition that is uniquely suited to each patient's motility, as well as the tools you need to record and interpret study results. The software contains our most advanced algorithms, providing you with the tools you need to efficiently read and interpret study results.
The PillCam™ SB 3 system optimizes tissue coverage with the most advanced capsule endoscopy technology.
