CROHN’S DISEASE GASTROINTESTINAL & HEPATOLOGY SOLUTIONS
Over two million people globally may be affected with Crohn's disease.1 Approximately 72% of Crohn’s disease patients have small bowel involvement.2
The PillCam™ Crohn’s system is the only solution that allows physicians to directly and non-invasively visualize the small bowel and colon in a single procedure. Studies have shown that over 60% of Crohn’s disease patients had their treatment changed after a capsule endoscopy procedure.3,4
The PillCam™ SB 3 system allows for direct visualization and monitoring of lesions in the small bowel not detected by upper and lower endoscopy, which may lead to early diagnosis of Crohn’s disease and may expedite therapy.2
