Caption: Pill camera endoscopy. Patient holding a pill camera data recorder, attached by leads to eight radio receivers attached to his abdomen. The receivers are collecting video images sent from a pill camera as it travels through the patient's digestive system after being swallowed. The data recorder is worn on a belt around the patient's waist (see image M440/190), allowing the patient to carry on with normal activities while up to 50,000 images are recorded over an 8-hour examination period. Doctors can then examine the images for signs of digestive disorders such as cancer. This is the Given Diagnostic System, developed in Israel. It has been approved for use in the USA and Europe since 2001.
