Abstract

Colon capsule endoscopy is an emerging form of colon imaging that may be useful to improve compliance with colorectal cancer screening, but published experience with this device is extremely limited. Because the technology is currently only diagnostic, any positive findings require conventional colonoscopy for tissue sampling or polypectomy. There is currently no video capsule device cleared by the Food and Drug Administration for dedicated colon imaging. Significant research on this topic is required, and many fundamental questions for this technology remain unaddressed.
