Study Of A Pill-Sized Camera To Diagnose Gastrointestinal Bleeding

Description

People who have shown signs of bleeding in their stomach or intestines sought for a study of a video camera capsule to diagnose gastrointestinal bleeding.

Overview

We are studying whether use of a a pill-sized camera that is swallowed and then takes pictures as it travels through the stomach and intestines and sends them to a recording device worn on a belt around the waist will improve how gastrointestinal bleeding is diagnosed and treated.

What we're hoping for

We are hoping to get information about how the use of a camera that can be swallowed like a pill could improve how gastrointestinal bleeding is diagnosed and treated.
