Capsule Endoscopy

Capsule Endoscopy at Springfield Hospital

What is a capsule endoscopy?

A capsule endoscopy is a painless procedure used by doctors to take a look at your small bowel. Also known as a video capsule endoscopy, a tiny disposable camera the size of a large pill is given to the patient to swallow – sometimes called a 'pillcam'.

This capsule-sized camera sends thousands of pictures to a data recorder which will be worn on the patient’s waist, which the doctor can then look through to get a comprehensive idea of what’s going on inside your small bowel.
