Capsule endoscopy (also known as wireless capsule endoscopy or video capsule endoscopy) allows visualisation of the entire small intestine. The procedure has gained popularity because it is not invasive in the same way as traditional endoscopy and it is generally safe and well tolerated. Common indications for the use of capsule endoscopy include occult bleeding and iron-deficiency anaemia, among others.
This online course aims to provide a full introduction to capsule endoscopy, capsule reporting software and the potential complications that may be encountered. Eight cases are used to illustrate the role of capsule endoscopy. The course is based on a presentation (with 35 accompanying slides) given by Uwe Seitz as part of a practical skills training session recorded in June 2015 at the United European Gastroenterology Summer School in Prague, Czech Republic.
