PillCam™ Crohn’s Capsule
Comprehensive Crohn’s disease monitoring with a single capsule
PillCam™ Crohn’s is the first commercially available, pan-enteric capsule which allows GI Consultants to directly, and non-invasively, visualise Crohn’s disease activity in the small bowel and colon. This technology enables efficient monitoring of mucosal healing or disease progression, and it provides significant advantages over other modalities, including radiology.
The PillCam™ Crohn’s system is the only product that allows GI Consultants to directly visualise the small bowel and colon with one procedure. It has been specifically designed to evaluate Crohn’s disease activity over time with innovative GI table and GI map features, embedded in the new PillCam v9 software.
With advanced optics and innovative imaging features, the PillCam™ Crohn’s system allows for a thorough evaluation of Crohn’s disease activity and mucosal healing.
The PillCam™ Crohn’s system puts patient’s safety and comfort first. It serves as an alternative to ileo-colonoscopy and radiological exams, but without the increased risk of cancer. In addition, the procedure:
Is non-invasive and does not require sedation or radiation
Is well tolerated by patients
Can prevent patients from having to repeat colonoscopy and upper endoscopy
Has the potential to reduce the number of necessary exams, which can help make disease management more convenient and may increase patient satisfaction
Has significant cost-saving implication potential for patients on biologic therapy, who undergo routine endoscopic / radiological surveillance
