​​What is Camera Pill and How does it work?

Capsule endoscopy is a way to record images of the digestive tract for use in medicine. The capsule is the size and shape of a pill and contains a tiny camera. After a patient swallows the capsule, it takes pictures of the inside of the gastrointestinal tract.
The capsule is equipped with a miniature video camera and light source. It travels painlessly through your entire digestive tract. It captures images quickly and sends them to a recording device you wear during the procedure. The PillCam™ SB capsule is disposable and passes naturally through your body.
