The PillCam™ Colon Capsule for Colon Cancer Screening: Comparison Between the First- and Second-Generation Capsules

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Population-based screening for colorectal cancer is widely recommended, with conventional colonoscopy (CC) being considered the preferred modality. However, compliance with colonoscopy screening is low, ranging between 20% and 50%, and manpower capacity for performing CC is limited. Therefore, a new, minimally invasive diagnostic tool, the PillCam™ Colon Capsule Endoscope (PCCE) was developed to become a desirable, patient-friendly, alternative strategy. This article will review the data regarding the 2 available generations of the PCCE.
