Modern medicine has made it possible to offer procedures that are quick, painless, and thorough. Capsule endoscopy is a diagnostic technology that uses a pill-sized video capsule to photograph the inside lining of the esophagus, stomach and small intestine to evaluate for abdominal pain, diarrhea, gastrointestinal bleeding, anemia and inflammatory bowel disease. For capsule endoscopy, the intestines are first cleared with diet and laxatives. The patient then swallows a pill-sized capsule containing a miniature video camera, light bulb, battery and transmitter. The capsule travels through the esophagus, stomach and small intestine, taking thousands of photographs. They are transmitted to a small Bluetooth® receiver worn by the patient. After approximately 8 hours, the patient returns to the office and the photographs are downloaded to a computer, where they can be reviewed by Dr. Berookim.
