What is Video Capsule Endoscopy?
Often times Doctors aren’t able to detect the underlying cause for gastrointestinal diseases and the symptoms that are directly linked to it. Medication and surgery is prescribed and patients end up feeling worse than before, dependent on tablets, with little control over what is happening inside. This approach may eradicate symptoms and instant pain, however they are just fixing the surface and are completely neglecting the underlying cause.
To determine the root of recurrent or persistent symptoms such as abdominal pain, diarrhea, bleeding or anemia, our doctors may recommend a Video Capsule Endoscopy, especially if a gastroscopy and a colonoscopy have already been performed without revealing a specific diagnosis.
VCE can help to evaluate the extent to which your small intestine is involved or monitor the effect of a treatment given.
VCE offers a radiation-free, non-invasive and well-tolerated way to visualize and inspect our gastrointestinal tract, especially the small intestine. VCE consists of a wireless video capsule with one or multiple cameras connected to a light source, lens, batteries and a video chip through an electronic circuit in order to capture and transmit images.
VCE is useful in obtaining motility data such as gastric or small bowel passage time and aids in diagnosing dis-eases. The primary benefits of VCE include:
- Extensive visual examination of small intestine to find sources of bleeding.
- The non-invasive nature of the method makes it painless and convenient.
- No need to anesthesia or other sedation
- It does not require any traditional preparation except for 12-hour fasting.
