Doctors Can Now Examine Our Stomach with Tiny Cameras
Wireless technology has enabled doctors to give patients a tiny camera in pill form. This camera pill is swallowed and provides a less invasive way of checking the digestive system. Diseases of the small intestine such as cancer are hard to diagnose.
Doctors can now image the small intestine using a tiny camera placed in a pill. It works like this: the patient swallows the camera pill. It is made from indigestible material that protects the pill from acids inside our stomach. The pill has a camera inside it that can take pictures and videos with fluorescent and white lights in the pill light up the tissue wall.
When the procedure begins, the patient has a belt fitted containing radio censors and a data recorder. Once swallowed, the pill can transmit two images in one second or even a live video to the belt. The pill can then pass through the patient’s digestive system in 10-48 hours.
After the initial 48 hours, the patient returns to the hospital. The pictures and videos captured by the camera pill are then analyzed. Computers can then identify anomalies that may be present in your gut. The doctors can then easily diagnose properly based on the analysis and anomalies identified.Disclaimer:We do not allow users to post content which is copyright and We take strict actions against the users who post infringement content on our website.Although we do not host any content, users post embed videos from youtube, facebook, Dailymotion and Vimeo and are moderated before posting but we still take strict action against the copyright videos posted.If you are an official representative of any company whose videos are posted illegally on our website or you think some video infringe the copyright then you can simply send an email to email@example.com
