(Capsule Endoscope System)
The general usage workflow of the MiroCam® system is as follows, the MiroCam® capsule captures images of the GI tract, which are sent via Human Body Communication to sensor pads which are affixed to the patient body. The sensor pads are connected to the receiver by the data cables. The image data is stored on the receiver for the duration of the patient procedure. After removing the receiver set from the patient body, the receiver is connected via USB to the Commercial PC and the image data is uploaded. Following upload, the physician (Gastroenterologist) reviews the patient image data for suspected abnormalities of the small bowel. The key system components are explained in detail below.
