PillCam® SB Imaging System
PillCam SB from Given Imaging is the most widely used, patient-friendly tool for directly visualizing the small bowel to detect and monitor abnormalities. This procedure is the standard of care for small bowel evaluation, helping healthcare practitioners detect the presence of lesions and what may be the source of obscure GI bleeding, Crohn’s disease and iron deficiency anemia.
With PillCam SB, Dr. Bell can visualize the entire small bowel without putting his patients through a lengthy, uncomfortable procedure or having them undergo sedation. By simply swallowing a vitamin-sized capsule, Dr. Bell may detect and monitor lesions, ulcers, tumors, and bleeding within the small bowel.
