Magnetically-controlled robotic capsule can diagnose small bowel disease

AsiaIndustrial NetNews: According to Xinhua News Agency, the Sixth People’s Hospital Affiliated to Shanghai Jiaotong University uses magnetic controlrobotCapsule endoscopy was performed to diagnose 199 patients with suspected small bowel disease. Clinical practice has proved that the use of this new technology can improve the accuracy of early screening of digestive tract tumors, especially the accuracy of early diagnosis of difficult diseases of the small intestine.

The patient only needs to swallow the robot magnetic-controlled capsule endoscope, which is the size of ordinary capsules, with water, and the examination can be completed in about 15 minutes. Waiting for virus detection, the whole process is basically non-invasive, pain-free, anesthesia, and cross-infection.

Compared with the previous capsule endoscopy, the image of the robotic magnetron capsule has higher resolution and is more “movable” in the human body. Magnetically controlled robotic capsule endoscopy is suitable for patients with advanced age, severe hypertension, arrhythmia, unstable angina, allergy to sedative (anesthetic) drugs and other serious risks of anesthesia, and gastrointestinal dysfunction.

According to experts, because the traditional electronic enteroscopy operation time is often as long as 4-6 hours and the operation is difficult, some clinical patients are unacceptable and have poor compliance, and it is difficult to complete the 5-7 meters of whole small intestine observation. Small bowel CT has a certain diagnostic value for intestinal mass and small bowel obstruction, but it has limited diagnostic value for early intestinal lesions, erosive enteritis, and active intestinal bleeding. However, ordinary capsule endoscopy can only observe the small intestine in 90 degrees, without power, and cannot observe the small intestine in 360 degrees, which is easy to stay in the stomach, and the electricity consumption time is short, which also has certain limitations.
