Spire Clare Park Hospital launches PillCam™ SB 3 System

22 June 2018

The PillCam™ SB 3 System is a capsule based, patient friendly tool for directly visualising the small bowel to detect and monitor abnormalities.

This procedure is for small bowel evaluation, helping healthcare practitioners detect the presence of lesions and what may be the source of obscure GI bleeding, Crohn’s disease and iron deficiency anaemia.

With the PillCam™ SB 3 Capsule, physicians can visualise the entire small bowel without putting their patients through a lengthy, uncomfortable procedure or having them undergo sedation. By simply swallowing a vitamin-sized capsule, physicians may detect and monitor lesions, ulcers, tumours, and bleeding within the small bowel.

The PillCam™ SB 3 Capsule procedure is available at Spire Clare Park Hospital’s purpose built, high-definition endoscopy suite which opened in October 2016. The suite provides rapid access to a range of outpatient and day case procedures, helping to diagnose and treat problems related to the digestive system, small and large bowel.
