Hey, You Just Swallowed a Camera!
- Researchers have developed a vitamin pill-sized wireless video camera that
can be swallowed to take images of the inside of the stomach, intestines, and
- Other techniques for getting images of the stomach or bowels cause
discomfort and usually require sedation or anesthesia.
- This wireless camera, however, does not cause any problems in healthy
volunteers, and takes six hours of video images while a person continues
normal, daily activities.
