Capsule endoscopy is the video evaluation of the small intestine. The capsule endoscope is a small video camera which is swallowed. After swallowing, you can resume your normal activities. After 8 hours, you bring the data recording equipment back to our office. Later, our physicians will review the images on a computer. We will contact you within a few days with results after our physicians have viewed the images.
