Positive coeliac serology in irritable bowel syndrome patients with normal duodenal biopsies: Video capsule endoscopy findings and HLA-DQ typing may affect clinical management. (1/222)

OBJECTIVES: To investigate a group of IBS patients (Rome criteria) with positive coeliac serology (EMA, TTG, IgG or IgA AGA) and normal small bowel biopsies. Video capsule endoscopy (VCE) findings of the small bowell were compared with DQ-typing. METHODS: Twenty-two patients with chronic abdominal pain (with or without diarrhea) and at least one positive result of any of the coeliac serological markers (AGA, TTG, EMA) and normal duodenal biopsy were enrolled and underwent VCE. Twelve healthy volunteers with VCE served as control group. Coeliac related HLA DQ2 or DQ8 markers were determined. RESULTS: 12/ 22 (55%) patients had small bowel abnormalities with VCE. No mucosal abnormalities were recognized in the control group (p = 0.002). Inflammatory changes were classified as moderate or pronounced. Eight patients (36%) had moderate changes and four patients (18%) demonstrated pronounced changes. Only 6 of the 21 IBS patients were positive for DQ2 and/or DQ8. CONCLUSIONS: The patients in this study fulfilled the diagnostic Rome criteria for Irritable Bowel Syndrome. We suggest that patients with positive coeliac serology and normal duodenal biopsies should undergo HLA typing. In patients positive for DQ2 and/or DQ8, a VCE should be performed. Patients with mucosal abnormalities compatible with CD should be considered as a group distinct from IBS patients and could be tested with gluten challenge or treated with a gluten free diet.  (+info)

Gastrointestinal bleeding of obscure origin undetected by multiple tests for fecal occult blood and diagnosed only by capsule endoscopy: a case report. (2/222)

The term gastrointestinal bleeding of obscure origin is used to describe bleeding of unknown origin that persists or recurs after a negative initial esophagogastroduodenoscopy and colonoscopy. We report the case of a middle-aged woman with gastrointestinal bleeding of obscure origin who had 9 stool specimens that tested negative for occult blood but was found to have adenocarcinoma of the distal duodenum on capsule endoscopy. This case illustrates that, in the presence of unexplained iron-deficiency anemia, multiple negative fecal occult blood tests do not exclude the presence of GI blood loss, and that capsule endoscopy is a valuable diagnostic study in this context.  (+info)

Diagnostic yield and safety of capsule endoscopy. (3/222)

INTRODUCTION: the capsule endoscopy (CE), from his approval, has become a first line diagnostic procedure for the study of the small bowel disease. The aim of this study is to report our experience since the implantation of this technique in our hospital. MATERIAL AND METHODS: retrospective review of the CE undertaken in Department of Endoscopy. There was gathered in every case the age, sex, motive of consultation, previous diagnostic procedures, capsule endoscopy findings and complication of the technique. One took to end a descriptive and analytical analysis. RESULTS: there was achieved a total of 416 explorations in 388 patients. The obscure gastrointestinal bleeding was the most frequent indication (83.30%) followed by suspected Crohn s disease (7.5%). Angiodisplasia was the endoscopic lesion more frequently detected (42.2%), especially, in patients with digestive bleeding of obscure origin (OR 3.13 p < 0.001), followed by the flebectasia (10.6%) and the ulcer suspicious of Crohn s disease (9.9%). The global diagnostic yield as for the detection of injuries was 77.34% with a case of "not defecation of the capsule" and therefore need of laparotomy. CONCLUSIONS: the capsule endoscopy is a technique consolidated and as his potential is known, his indications are extended. The obscure gastrointestinal bleeding is the most frequent indication and the angiodisplasia the most identified injury. Once known his diagnostic yield, larger studies are needed that assess the influence of capsule endoscopy on clinical outcoumes.  (+info)

Use of video capsule endoscopy in a patient with an implantable cardiac defibrillator. (4/222)

Video capsule endoscopy (VCE) is a useful diagnostic tool in patients with unknown blood loss, particularly when there is a high suspicion of small bowel disease, but because of its use of radio frequency, it is relatively contraindicated in patients with a cardiac device. We report the case of a patient with an implantable cardiac defibrillator (ICD) who underwent VCE because of anaemia and previous surgery for colorectal cancer. Device interrogations were performed before and after the procedure. No interference between VCE and ICD was found. VCE is feasible and relatively safe in patients with ICDs.  (+info)

Does capsule endoscopy recognise gastric antral vascular ectasia more frequently than conventional endoscopy? (5/222)

BACKGROUND: Gastric antral vascular ectasia (GAVE) is a rare cause of obscure gastrointestinal bleeding which can be difficult to recognise endoscopically. Capsule endoscopy is primarily designed to image the small bowel, but may identify gastric and colonic lesions. There have been few reported cases of GAVE diagnosed by capsule endoscopy in the literature. OBJECTIVE: Our aim was to assess the frequency of GAVE in patients with obscure gastrointestinal bleeding referred for capsule endoscopy. DESIGN: Case series. SETTING: This study was conducted in a tertiary referral hospital. PATIENTS. This study comprised 128 consecutive patients with obscure gastrointestinal bleeding. INTERVENTIONS: All patients underwent capsule endoscopy. RESULTS. Six patients were diagnosed with GAVE on the basis of the capsule endoscopy findings (4.7%, five female, median age 71.5 years). All patients had previously had numerous gastrointestinal investigations prior to capsule endoscopy. Five patients to date have been treated with argon plasma coagulation of their vascular lesions. This has resulted in stabilisation of their haemoglobin and cessation of blood transfusions in 4/5 cases with an average follow up period of 15 months. CONCLUSIONS: GAVE is commonly missed at gastroscopy and accounted for 4.7% of patients referred for capsule endoscopy with obscure gastrointestinal bleeding (in our series). This case series represents the largest number of GAVE recognised by capsule endoscopy. In the presence of any of the reported risk/associated factors for GAVE the gastroenterologist interpreting the capsule images should have a high index of suspicion.  (+info)

The role of capsule endoscopy combined with double-balloon enteroscopy in diagnosis of small bowel diseases. (6/222)

BACKGROUND: The diagnosis of small bowel diseases remains relatively inefficient using traditional imaging techniques. Capsule endoscopy (CE) and double-balloon enteroscopy (DBE) are two novel methods of enteroscopy for examining the entire small bowel. The aim of this study was to evaluate the detection rate and diagnostic accuracy of CE and DBE in patients with suspected small bowel diseases and to investigate the clinical significance of combined use of these two novel modalities. METHODS: Two hundred and eighteen patients were evaluated for suspected small bowel disease, including 116 with obscure gastrointestinal bleeding and 102 with obscure abdominal pain or chronic diarrhea. One hundred and sixty-five out of these patients underwent CE first and 53 patients underwent DBE (under anesthesia with propofol) first. DBE was recommended after negative or equivocal evaluation on CE and vise versa. Introduction of the endoscope during DBE was either orally or anally and the patients were referred for a second procedure using the opposite route several days later when no abnormalities were found on the first procedure. The detection rates, diagnostic accuracy, tolerance and frequency of adverse events of these two modalities were then analyzed. RESULTS: Failure of the procedure was seen in one patient with CE and in two patients with DBE. Sixty-four DBE procedures were carried out in 51 patients; by the oral route in 34 cases, the anal route in 4 and both routes in 13 cases. The overall detection rate of small bowel diseases using CE (72.0%, 118/164) was superior to that with DBE (41.2%, 21/51); chi(2) = 16.1218, P < 0.0001. The diagnostic rate (51.8%, 85/164) was also higher than that with the latter procedure (39.2%, 20/51), but was not significantly different (chi(2) = 2.4771, P > 0.05). Furthermore, the detection rate of small bowel diseases in patients with obscure gastrointestinal bleeding using CE (88.0%, 88/100) was superior to that of DBE (60.0%, 9/15); chi(2) = 7.7457, P = 0.0054. Lesions were detected by DBE in 1 out of 4 patients in whom CE had a negative result. Suspected findings by CE were confirmed by DBE combined with biopsy in 12 out of 15 patients. On the other hand, small bowel lesions were identified by CE in all 3 patients after negative evaluations by DBE. There were no severe complications during or after either of the two procedures. CONCLUSIONS: The detection rate of small bowel diseases by CE is very high. CE should be selected for the initial diagnosis in patients with suspected small bowel diseases, especially in patients with obscure gastrointestinal bleeding. DBE appears to be inferior to CE in the diagnosis of small bowel diseases. However, it was shown that abnormalities could still be identified by DBE in patients with normal images or used to confirm suspected findings from CE. DBE can also serve as a good complementary approach after an initial diagnostic imaging using CE.  (+info)

Intermittent bowel obstruction due to a retained wireless capsule endoscope in a patient with a small bowel carcinoid tumour. (7/222)

A 43-year-old man with a history of metastatic carcinoid disease is presented. The patient had symptoms of chronic intermittent abdominal pain two years after undergoing a wireless capsule endoscopy procedure. Radiological examinations revealed a retained capsule endoscope, and the patient underwent exploratory laparotomy with capsule retrieval. To the authors' knowledge, this is the first case presentation of chronic, partial small bowel obstruction caused by unrecognized retention of a capsule endoscope.  (+info)

Capsule endoscopy retention as a helpful tool in the management of a young patient with suspected small-bowel disease. (8/222)

Capsule endoscopy is an easy and painless procedure permitting visualization of the entire small-bowel during its normal peristalsis. However, important problems exist concerning capsule retention in patients at risk of small bowel obstruction. The present report describes a young patient who had recurrent episodes of overt gastrointestinal bleeding of obscure origin, 18 years after small bowel resection in infancy for ileal atresia. Capsule endoscopy was performed, resulting in capsule retention in the distal small bowel. However, this event contributed to patient management by clearly identifying the site of obstruction and can be used to guide surgical intervention, where an anastomotic ulcer is identified.  (+info)

Wireless capsule endoscopy for gastrointestinal (GI) tract is a modern technology that has the potential to replace conventional endoscopy techniques. Capsule endoscopy is a pill-shaped device embedded with a camera, a coin battery, and a data transfer. Without a locomotion system, this capsule endoscopy can only passively travel inside the GI tract via natural peristalsis, thus causing several disadvantages such as inability to control and stop, and risk of capsule retention. Therefore, a locomotion system needs to be added to optimize the current capsule endoscopy. This review summarizes the state-of-the-art locomotion methods along with the desired locomotion features such as size, speed, power, and temperature and compares the properties of different methods. In addition, properties and motility mechanisms of the GI tract are described. The main purpose of this review is to understand the features of GI tract and diverse locomotion methods in order to create a future capsule endoscopy compatible
Hellenic Society of Gastroenterology. Annals of Gastroenterology.Journal part.Scientific article.Article.2014 . Creators: Koulaouzidis, Anastasios, Plevris, John N., Docherty, Emily, Douglas, Sarah.Background There are only few reports on the diagnostic yield (DY) of small bowel capsule endoscopy (SBCE) in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). We aim to report our SBCE experience in patients with CKD.Methods Retrospective study; case notes of patients with low estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) who underwent SBCE (March 2005-August 2012) for anemia and/or obscure gastrointestinal bleeding (OGIB) were retrieved and abstracted. Severity of CKD was defined according to Renal Association recommendations as: stage 3 (eGFR: 30-59); stage 4 (eGFR: 15-29); and stage 5 (eGFR |15 or on dialysis).Results In the aforementioned period, 69 patients with CKD [stage 3: 65/69 (92.8%), stage 4 or 5:4/69 (7.2%)] had SBCE. 51/65 (78.5%) patients with stage 3 CKD had SBCE due to unexplained anemia and/or
Wireless capsule endoscopy is an advanced application of using ICT in healthcare and medicine. It is a non-invasive method to examine the gastrointestinal (GI) for early diagnosis and treatment. The capsule is equipped with a camera, light source, processing, control unit, and a transmitter to send the captured pictures or videos wirelessly to an external receiver system. The capsule is used to monitor small bowel diseases, esophageal diseases, and colonic diseases. The current data rate of the capsule endoscopes is limited to 1-2 Mbps with 2-3 frames per second and significant compression rates are applied to provide an operation time at least 8 hours inside the body. The data and frame rates might be sufficient for a capsule without locomotion, in which the capsule travels slowly, and the gastric wall movements mainly manage the speed. However, the next generation of the capsules will need remote locomotion and orientation control for fast and precise diagnosis. This application requests high ...
The passive movement of capsule endoscopy has geared research to investigate the possibility of developing a locomotion mechanism to allow the control of the capsule movement. The size and the power capacity of capsule endoscopy have been the main bottlenecks to achieve an efficient locomotion design. Running a locomotion device for a long time it seems to be impossible without the utilization of an external magnetic field that has been found to be unsafe for human risks. A short utilization of a locomotion mechanism, which is controlled from outside the capsule, could solve the problems of size and power capacity limitations. The short utilization of the simplified design could solve a major risk of capsule endoscopy which is capsule retention. This paper is set out to investigate the feasibility of developing an internal capsule retention release mechanism to solve the problem of capsule endoscopy retention. This includes the design and configuration of new capsule model to mount the proposed ...

Objective: Capsule endoscopy is a novel investigation for diagnosing small bowel diseases. However, its interpretation is highly subjective and the potential variability may compromise its accuracy and reliability. Here we studied the potential inter-observer variations on the interpretation of capsule endoscopy. Method: Two residents and one specialist in gastroenterology independently reviewed 58 capsule endoscopy studies in the same sequential order. The gastric transit time, small bowel transit time, and the most significant small bowel lesion were independently recorded. The consensus transit time was determined by the joint review of the three gastroenterologists. The gold standard for small bowel diagnoses was based on final surgical, endoscopic findings or consensus diagnosis. Results: Clinically significant and relevant small bowel lesions were found in 32 (55%) cases by consensus review. The overall mean accuracy in determining gastric emptying time, small bowel transit time and ...
Although tarry stool is a common feature of peptic ulcer bleeding, it can also be a manifestation of lower gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding. Examples include colonic cancer, small bowel tumors, and small or large bowel ulcers induced by aspirin or painkillers (NSAIDs). However, clinicians are often misled by the finding of peptic ulcers as the source of GI bleeding. It is not uncommon to detect peptic ulcers incidentally but the source of bleeding is actually in the lower GI tract (e.g. NSAID- or aspirin-induced small or large bowel bleeding ulcers, small bowel tumors, or colorectal cancer). Delay in diagnosis of lower GI bleeding often leads to serious consequences.. The preferred investigations for lower GI bleeding are colonoscopy plus video capsule endoscopy. Colonoscopy has been the gold standard for the diagnosis of colonic bleeding. The risk of colonoscopy-induced complications such as bleeding or perforation is less than 1 in 3500. Video capsule endoscopy is a non-invasive, safe and ...
Methods: Colonoscopy is a technique for examine colon cancer, polyps. In endoscopy, video capsule is universally used mechanism for finding gastrointestinal stages. But both the mechanisms are used to find the colon cancer or colorectal polyp. The Automatic Polyp Detection sub-challenge conducted as part of the Endoscopic Vision Challenge (http://endovis.grand-challenge.org). Method: Colonoscopy may be primary way of improve the ability of colon cancer detection especially flat lesions. Which otherwise may be difficult to detect. Recently, automatic polyp detection algorithms have been proposed with various degrees of success. Though polyp detection in colonoscopy and other traditional endoscopy procedure based images is becoming a mature field, due to its unique imaging characteristics, detecting polyps automatically in colonoscopy is a hard problem. So the proposed video capsule cam supports to diagnose the polyps accurate and easy to identify its pattern. Existing methodology mainly concentrated on

The meta-analysis by Triester and colleagues shows that capsule endoscopy is clearly superior to push enteroscopy and small bowel barium radiography for identifying diagnostic abnormalities in patients with OGIB. This was also true for clinically important findings, defined as lesions definitely or probably the source of bleeding, as determined by the authors of each included study. This is not surprising, as capsule endoscopy has a farther reach and thus will detect lesions farther in the small intestine than push enteroscopy, and small bowel radiography will not detect superficial lesions of the small intestine, the most common sources of OGIB. Little difference, however, existed between capsule endoscopy and push enteroscopy in detecting tumors, arguably the most important lesion causing OGIB. A diagnostic test is only as good as the management to which it leads. In the opinion of this reviewer, a definitive therapeutic procedure (e.g., surgery) is necessary for OGIB only if a tumor is ...

Capsule Endoscopy is usually performed on an outpatient basis. Eight sensors will be place on the patients abdomen. The sensors will be attached to a Data Recorder that will be worn in a belt around the patients waist. The patient will be instructed to swallow the Pill Cam with a small amount of water. The sensors on the patients abdomen will transmit photographs to the Data Recorder as it passes through the digestive tract. The patient will go home and perform normal daily activities but will not be allowed to remove the sensors or Data Recorder. After 8 hours the patient will return to the hospital to have the Data Recorder removed and the sensors. The patient will be instructed to check their stool for passage of the capsule and to report it to the Physician. If the patient does not observe passage of the capsule they must refrain from having an MRI. An X-ray must be performed to determine if the capsule has been passed before an MRI can be performed..

Between 1% and 2% of the UK population undergo gastroscopy per annum and there has been a 30% increase in demand since the publication of the National Institute of Clinical Excellence guidance for dyspepsia in 2004 (CG141).1 Despite this, in dyspeptic patients, over 70% of patients have normal gastroscopies.2 Upper gastrointestinal (GI) capsules can be controlled by patient position changes (Pillcam UGI, Medtronic, Minneapolis, USA) and good views can be achieved 80% of the time, but require a separate reading session lasting a mean of 48 min.3 On the other hand, using handheld magnets to control upper GI capsules (Mirocam Navi, Intromedic, Seoul, Korea) allows a live examination. In a single blinded comparative study of recurrent or refractory iron deficiency anaemia, patients reported better tolerance to capsule endoscopy and clinicians found more lesions likely to cause iron deficiency on capsule endoscopy than gastroscopy. Mean magnet capsule examination time by the operator was 23 min. ...
Evidence-based recommendations on wireless capsule endoscopy (swallowing small capsule with camera) for investigating the small bowel

|i|Background and Aim|/i|. The third-generation capsule endoscopy (SB3) was shown to have better image resolution than that of SB2. The aim of this study was to compare SB2 and SB3 regarding detectability of esophageal varices (EVs).|i| Methods|/i|. Seventy-six consecutive liver cirrhosis patients (42 men; mean age: 67 years) received SB3, and 99 (58 men; mean age, 67 years old) received SB2. All patients underwent esophagogastroduodenoscopy within 1 month prior to capsule endoscopy as gold standard for diagnosis. The diagnosis using SB3 and SB2 for EVs was evaluated regarding form (F0-F3), location (Ls, Lm, and Li), and the red color (RC) sign of EVs.|i| Results|/i|. SB2 and SB3 did not significantly differ on overall diagnostic rates for EV. Sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value, and negative predictive value of SB2/SB3 for EV diagnosis were, respectively, 65%/81%, 100%/100%, 100%/100%, and 70%/62%. However, the diagnostic rates for EV form F1 were 81% using SB3 and 52% using SB2 (|svg

Results Video capsule endoscopy was performed in all patients before SBE. Thirty-seven SBE procedures were performed on 26 patients (20 males), mean age; 64 (range 29-83). Indications were: Iron deficiency anaemia (4), obscure gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding (18), suspected Crohns disease (2), abnormal radiology (2), abnormal video-capsule endoscopy findings (10). Thirty-two were antegrade and five were retrograde procedures. 16 (42%) procedures were therapeutic. Histological biopsies were taken in 6 (17%). Two patients required general anaesthesia (1 had a previously failed SBE). Mean sedation doses were midazolam: 4.8 mg (range 2.5-10), fentanyl 85.7 μg (range 50-100). Mean comfort score=2 (range 2-5), mean sedation score 2 (range 2-3). Overall diagnostic yield was 61%. Diagnoses: Angiodysplasia n=10, normal n=15, ulceration n=7, Crohns disease n=1, Other n=5. Complications: none. ...
It is clear from these and other studies that patients with normal ileoscopy at colonoscopy have been found to have small bowel abnormalities which are thought to be Crohns disease at capsule endoscopy and appeared to respond to treatment for this condition. Mow and colleagues,16 Hume and colleagues,19 and Lo20 suggested that capsule enteroscopy may be especially helpful in distinguishing Crohns disease from ulcerative colitis in patients with indeterminate colitis, perhaps especially in those in whom ileal pouch formation is being considered. WCE has also been used in children with gastrointestinal blood loss, anaemia, or abdominal pain, and cases of Crohns disease are a moderately common finding in this group.21,22 In India, WCE was able to provide images of small intestinal tuberculosis which can be difficult to distinguish from Crohns disease.23. In Voderholzers paper published in this issue of Gut,24 the frequency of small intestinal Crohns disease found by WCE in a consecutive series ...
Iron deficiency anemia (IDA) is a common problem worldwide. The initial workup usually involves performing a bidirectional endoscopy. When negative, the small bowel could be the source of obscure gastrointestinal bleeding presenting as IDA. The next best diagnostic test is uncertain. Wireless capsule endoscopy (WCE) is a non-invasive new technology that allows examination of the entire small bowel. Methods: We designed a randomized controlled pilot study to outline the challenges for conducting a full randomized controlled trial (RCT) to determine if WCE should be first-line investigation in such cases. 109 patients were enrolled; 55 intervention (WCE) & 54 controls (standard of care) (SC). Results: Two-years post-randomization there was no difference in anemia between the two groups. Conclusion: Few methodological hurdles for conducting a full RCT were identified ...
The team compared the base-case strategy of no screening for Barretts esophagus with 2 competing screening strategies.. The first strategy included esophageal capsule endoscopy followed by upper endoscopy if Barretts was suspected.. Within this strategy, esophageal capsule endoscopy was followed by upper endoscopy if there was poor visualization.. The second strategy was standard sedated endoscopy followed by upper endoscopy with biopsy.. The researchers obtained cost estimates from a third-party payer perspective.. For each strategy the team determined lifetime costs, life-years gained, and numbers of esophageal cancers detected.. The researchers also determined death rates from esophageal cancer, and procedural deaths.. The research team found that initial endoscopy followed by upper endoscopy was more expensive but more effective compared with the no screening strategy.. Assuming a theoretical cohort of 10,000 patients with GERD, initial endoscopy followed by upper endoscopy cost ...
During the early phases (phases 1 and 2), researchers assess safety, side effects, optimal dosages and risks/benefits. In the later phase (phase 3), researchers study whether the treatment works better than the current standard therapy. They also compare the safety of the new treatment with that of current treatments. Phase 3 trials include large numbers of people to make sure that the result is valid. There are also less common very early (phase 0) and later (phase 4) phases. Phase 0 trials are small trials that help researchers decide if a new agent should be tested in a phase 1 trial. Phase 4 trials look at long-term safety and effectiveness, after a new treatment has been approved and is on the market. ...
SAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch) -- Given Imaging Ltd.

A capsule endoscope has a solid image sensor introduced into a subject for picking up an image in the subject. The capsule endoscope includes a light-emitting unit for emitting illumination light for illuminating a view field of the solid image sensor; a lens frame for holding a lens to focus an image in the subject on a light-receiving surface of the solid image sensor, the lens frame having an upper end portion located at a position lower than an upper surface of the light-emitting unit; and a shield unit for shielding, from the illumination light, at least a partial area of the upper end portion of the lens frame which receives the illumination light.
BACKGROUND:We aimed to determine the utility of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) compared with small bowel follow-through (SBFT) in the assessment of known Crohns disease.METHODS:Subjects, over age 18 yr who were to undergo SBFT investigations to assess for complications or extent of Crohns disease were eligible. SBFT was performed by a single radiologist (IB), and within 4 wk MRI was performed by a single radiologist (HG) who was blinded to the SBFT results. For MRI, oral contrast was 2% barium sulfate (1,350 mL). After unenhanced T1 weighted images and single shot fast spin echo T2 imaging, intravenous (IV) glucagon and gadolinium were given. Fast multiplanar spoiled-gradient recalled T1 coronal sequences were obtained followed by abdominal and pelvic axial images. MRI and SBFT were compared for extent of disease, presence of complications, and for identification of extraintestinal disease.RESULTS:Paired studies were undertaken within a mean of 22 days in 30 subjects.

Wireless capsule endoscopy (WCE) has been intensively researched recently due to its convenience for diagnosis and extended detection coverage of some diseases. Typically, a full recording covering entire human digestive system requires about 8 to 12 hours for a patient carrying a capsule endoscope and a portable image receiver/recorder unit, which produces 120,000 image frames on average. In spite of the benefits of close examination, WCE based test has a barrier for quick diagnosis such that a trained diagnostician must examine a huge amount of images for close investigation, normally over 2 hours. The main purpose of our work is to present a novel machine vision approach to reduce diagnosis time by automatically detecting duplicated recordings caused by backward camera movement, typically containing redundant information, in small intestine. The developed technique could be integrated with a visualization tool which supports intelligent inspection method, such as automatic play speed control. ...

The title of this post might be stretching the truth since endoscopes have been around for quite a long while now, but the PillCam ESO 2 is different from the rest as it was specially designed to view the inner lining of the esophagus. Recently the FDA has stamped their mark of approval for the PillCam ESO 2, and this capsule endoscope from Given Imaging Limited of Israel will be marketed via InScope, a division of a Johnson & Johnson company. Getting the PillCam ESO 2 to work is dead easy - just swallow it and let the miniature cameras lined up on both ends to start snapping away.. A trio of sensor arrays are placed on the patients chest at strategic places, which are subsequently hooked up to a data recorder that is worn on a belt around the waist. When the capsule is swallowed, the patient must lie down, where he/she will then be raised in a series of inclinations within a period of 5 minutes. This will the PillCam ESO 2 to travel through the entire esophagus by riding those peristaltic ...

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - August marks a significant 10-year anniversary for patients with digestive problems. Just one decade ago, in August 2001, the FDA approved use of capsule endoscopy technology to examine the last frontier of the human GI tract - the small bowel.. Mayo Clinic in Arizona was among the first medical centers in the U.S. to perform exams of the small bowel using the pioneering pill camera technology that can scan the far corners of the GI tract - painlessly and without surgery.. Over the past decade, Mayo Clinic as a three-site organization (Arizona, Florida and Minnesota) has completed more than 7,000 such exams, where patients swallow a vitamin-sized capsule that contains a miniature camera. The capsule then travels through the digestive tract, snapping thousands of pictures that are transmitted to a recorder that patients wear around their waist for eight to 12 hours. Images saved on the recorder are transferred to a computer to create a video of the digestive tract, ...
Making an appropriate diagnosis of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) requires a variety of laboratory tests, serologic studies, imaging techniques and procedures such as endoscopies, and biopsies. While many methods are widely used when IBD is suspected based on symptoms and history, some confusion persists around newer diagnostic modalities such as MRE and capsule endoscopies, as well as the utility of emerging serologic biomarker tests. Additionally, uncommon presentations of IBD such as asymptomatic ileitis further complicate diagnostic workups. On this episode, Laura Wingate, Vice President of Education, Support, and Advocacy at the Crohns & Colitis Foundation, joins gastroenterologist Dr. David Binion, Co-Director at the IBD Center on Translational Research and Director of Nutrition Support Service at the University of Pittsburgh. The two discuss special diagnostic considerations for patients with IBD.

In the past few weeks my sister has gotten worse. More pain, more nausea. It seemed like a partial small bowel obstruction, probably from adhesions from her first surgery. She had an EGD and Colonoscopy from the local scope monkey (in case you are wondering that is a derogatory term for a GI doctor only interested in making money from procedures). She was then scheduled for a capsule endoscopy, where you swallow a camera and it takes pictures of the intestines that arent accessible by scope. Seemed like a good idea, only my sister never received an imaging test first. I didnt realize that she hadnt had that, I was hearing all of this second hand from both my sister and my parents. Where we are now is that the camera is stuck in a stricture/fistula in her intestine. This wouldnt be a problem except that the stomach acid erodes the plastic coating around the camera, exposing the the battery.
