Project Details

THE Royal Melbourne Hospital has the only substantial experience of PillCam colon use in Australia. This “camera in a pill” technology is now available for imaging the whole gastrointestinal tract. Research students have provided the most extensive experience with the technology in assessing mucosal healing in Crohn’s Disease.

Further studies are available refining bowel preparation for the procedure, conducting intereobserver studies, and comparing any changes in clinical management as a result of the information provided by the capsule.
