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.

By simply swallowing a vitamin-sized capsule, physicians may detect and monitor lesions, ulcers, tumors, and bleeding within the small bowel.
