Abstract

Thus, as I foresee it, in the future we will probably have 2 kinds of capsules. There will be a diagnostic capsule applying the improvements in image quality, angle of view, pathology detection, virtual biopsies, and advances in software and communication. This capsule will practically cover all the GI tract-from mouth to anus (just as the original inventors dreamt and named it). Another capsule will be a therapeutic capsule applying the advances of the maneuvering abilities via a joystick, anchoring abilities as well as the drug delivery abilities and possibly options for mechanical therapy.
