Abstract

Wireless capsule endoscopy is a relatively new technology for assessment of the digestive tract. Small intestinal applications are the most extensively studied, and it has quickly become a first line test for visualizing the mucosa of the small intestine. Further research and experience are still necessary to better define its role. The esophageal capsule uses similar technology but clinical data on its use are limited.
