With 4 on-board cameras and 16 LEDs, CapsoCam Plus provides twice the resolution of previous-generation CapsoCam capsules. The patient swallows the vitamin-sized capsule and goes home with only a retrieval system (no belts, harnesses or other wearable equipment), which includes a collection pan and magnetic wand used to recover the capsule. Upon collection, the patient returns the capsule to the doctor, who then downloads and analyzes the data. Capsule retrieval may be somewhat distasteful to some patients, and you have to consider the time required to sit down and analyze the data, but this could be a valuable first-line diagnostic tool for small-bowel diseases.
