Given Imaging, a company in the US, has designed a camera capsule for human consumption. This high-tech device is being used for medical reasons and has demonstrated to be an effective tool in patients with suspected bowel diseases presenting with symptoms such as chronic diarrhoea, unexplained abdominal pain, weight loss, iron deficiency anaemia and obscure gastrointestinal bleeding.

Simply requiring a 10 hour fast prior to the procedure, M2A Capsule endoscopy begins when the patient ingests the capsule with a glass of water.
