Scientists Invent Camera That Can be Swallowed To Find Tumours
Scientists, researchers and doctors in England have colluded to create an ingestible pill-sized camera called PillCam. The tiny camera will help doctors find bowel tumours without the need for invasive medical procedures involving the use of tubes.
The invention, encased in a pill for easy ingestion, will be trialled on 11,000 patients across the British colony spread over 40 areas of the country.
“Every year in England, we diagnose around 42,000 people with bowel cancer, that’s more than 100 people a day,” says NHS clinical director for cancer, Professor Peter Johnson, who expresses optimism that the technology can save lives.
“We think that this camera test might be a better option than waiting for a normal colonoscopy,” he added.
