Why do I need a Capsule Endoscopy?

The primary reason for capsule endoscopy is to examine the small bowel in your gastrointestinal tract. Some of the reasons for having a capsule endoscopy include:

 

  • iron deficiency anaemia (lack of iron in the body) 

  • obscure gastrointestinal bleeding (bleeding from a point not reachable by a traditional endoscope) 

  • suspected coeliac disease and inflammatory bowel diseases 

  • abnormalities such as polyps (small growths), seen on CT or MRI scans.
