Capsule Endoscopy

$0 or Minimal Out of Pocket Costs

Capsule Endoscopy (Pill Camera) is a non-invasive procedure that provides diagnostic imaging of parts of the bowel that cannot be reached by traditional upper endoscopy or colonoscopy.

Capsule (Pillcam) Endoscopy Procedure

A small, pill sized video camera is swallowed, recording vision of your small intestine as it passes through. These images are sent to a small recording device worn on the body, then downloaded to a computer to be analysed and reported by the specialist gastroenterologist.

The procedure is very safe, non-invasive and complications are very rare when a specialist gastroenterologist performs the test.
