Capsule endoscopy is an approved procedure for examining oesophagus (muscular tube), stomach, proximal small bowel, and colon in human anatomy. It is a medical process done for the screening of colon polyps (small lump of cells in the colon). It is also used for clinical evaluation of the mouth and stomach, and assists in the detection of any abnormal growth of veins.
Steps to take before Capsule Endoscopy
You will be asked to stop drinking, eating, or consume certain medications 12 hours prior to the surgery. The surgeon at Medanta might also advise you not to do any strenuous exercise.
What happens during Capsule Endoscopy?
The technician will attach a sensor to your chest, which will be connected to the data recorder that you will be wearing on a belt around your waist. You will then be asked to swallow a vitamin-sized capsule. The capsule contains a small camera and as it travels through your body, it captures various images. These images are sent to the data recorder and the doctor retrieves all images. Later, during urination, the capsule can be flushed.
After Capsule Endoscopy
You can resume drinking and eating after a few hours of the procedure. But, if you do not see the capsule flushed out within 2 weeks from the procedure, seek help of our doctors at Medanta.
