Pill Cam: Possible Alternative to Colonoscopy FDA Approved

Despite the admission from Given Industries that it’s Pill Cam is not as efficient as the traditional colonoscopy with respect to image quality, the FDA has given it the go-ahead for use in the U.S.   The target market is to be those who cannot tolerate the usual hosing, or  fail the exam process, and perhaps those who absolutely refuse it.  This alternative has already been approved in other countries and is potentially much cheaper and less nasty than the colonoscopy procedure.

So, what would you rather do?  Swallow a pill…
