Why Capsule

Some of the traditional tests for monitoring Crohn’s disease require radiation exposure. The long-term effects associated with radiation exposure are a great concern for 72% of Crohn’s disease patients.1    Aside from no radiation exposure, capsule endoscopy offers several benefits compared to traditional modalities for the diagnosis and monitoring of Crohn’s disease.

  • Demonstrated greater sensitivity for detecting proximal small bowel lesions2
  • Detected more extensive Crohn’s disease activity in 63% of patients who received an alternate imaging study at diagnosis 3
  • Enables detection of even subtle mucosal changes4
  • Mucosal healing can lead to fewer surgeries, long-term clinical remission, and fewer hospitalizations5
