Pan-Enteric Capsule Endoscopy

We are looking to introduce Pan-Enteric Capsule endoscopy shortly at the L&D. Potentially this could spare patients from having to undergo 3 separate procedures; SBCE, and invasive upper endoscopy + colonoscopy

A second-generation colon capsule (PillCam), designed to evaluate the entire small bowel and colon, has shown promising results (NEJM JW Gastroenterol Dec 2011 and Gastrointest Endosc 2011; 75:581).
