New Evidence Supports Using Capsule Endoscopy aka PIll Cam for Complicated Celiac Disease

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

To All,

I found this new research on the Pill Cam being used to diagnose Celiac's.  I know Scott will probably do an article on it soon....but I didn't see a reason to wait....to get some feedback on it.

Entitled  "New Evidence Supports Using Capsule Endoscopy for Complicated Celiac Disease:

40% of lesions were found distal to the ligament of Treitz and would have likely been missed by standard endoscopy"


What do you think is this a better method than Endoscopy to use to be diagnosed as a Celiac?

Is this the end of Endoscopy?

It looks like it could at least cut down on unnecessary repeated endoscopy's....

How long do you think it would be before medical practitioners begin using this new method to discover Villous Atrophy?

I hope this is helpful but it is not medical advise.
