CIMT: Colonic Capsule Endoscopy (CCE) for screening of colorectal cancer

Pilot study: Using video capsule for colon examination of citizens with a positive screening sample.

Colorectal cancer is one of the most common cancers in Denmark. To reduce the incidence rate, a national screening test (to be performed at home) was initiated in April 2014 for citizens aged 50 to 74.

The screening programme has caused a rise in the number of people needing a colonoscopy in the hospital to determine whether they have cancer or early stages of cancer, because the screening procedure often shows positive results. Both the screening test (submission of faeces sample) and colonoscopies are very uncomfortable and represent a great burden on the healthcare system. In addition, colonoscopies carry a considerable risk of serious complications and are very expensive. For this reason there is a great necessity to explore simpler and cheaper ways to test and diagnose patients. …PillCam w text

Odense Health – Innovation & Business: A unique combination of innovation

A unique combination of innovation

Odense University Hospital is about to test a so-called ‘pill camera’ in a new collaboration not seen elsewhere in the world.

PillCam® COLON, the latest generation of “pill cameras”, measures 1×3 cm (a little under 0.4×1.2 inches) and has a smooth surface to ensure that it’s easy to ingest. Swallowing a pill that films the inside of the bowels is much more attractive and less risky than a traditional colonoscopy. The pill camera might be the preferred method of screening for colon cancer in the future. …
