From the USA: High Visualization Found With Magnetically Controlled Capsule Endoscopy

Magnetically controlled capsule endoscopy (MCCE) offers a high rate of visualization of all regions of the gastric mucosa and is associated with high patient satisfaction and no adverse events, according to a study published online June 1 in iGIE.

Andrew C. Meltzer, M.D., from the George Washington University School of Medicine & Health Sciences in Washington, D.C., and colleagues conducted a single-arm comparative study involving adult patients aged 18 years and older who were referred for an esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) as part of a standard evaluation for symptoms. Before the EGD, participants received MCCE. Two independent physicians reviewed the MCCE videos and compared them to subsequent EGD.
