WHY CAPSOCAM PLUS®

CapsoCam Plus provides the most comprehensive imaging available in capsule endoscopy.

Developed with Silicon Valley innovation, the all-new CapsoCam Plus System is a state-of-the-art, user-friendly capsule endoscopy solution that is designed, tested, and packaged in the U.S.A.

CapsoCam Plus is designed to improve diagnostic capability by providing a full 360º panoramic direct lateral view of the small bowel mucosa.

Comprehensive, 360° panoramic imaging

Our next generation capsule endoscopy system features four laterally oriented, onboard cameras that capture a 360° panoramic view of the small bowel and any abnormalities with high resolution images. This provides you with:

  • The ability to look directly at the mucosa instead of “down the tunnel,” allowing visibility of more lesions, if they are present.
  • High resolution images to help with diagnostic assurance.

 

Higher resolution and clarity

Imaging hardware in CapsoCam Plus is designed and optimized to deliver a through view of the small bowel mucosa. High resolution and typical 15 hour battery life provides the most comprehensive imaging available today. More detailed imaging allows for greater diagnostic yield. In fact, CapsoCam plus has been proven to see more lesions.3

CapsoCam Plus visualized the ampulla of Vater more than 70%1 of the time compared to 10%2 for leading end-facing capsules. If other systems miss this universal landmark, imagine how much more you will see with CapsoCam Plus.

CapsoCam Plus vs. the competition

End-facing cameras have an inherent limitation in imaging the inner curvature of the intestinal wall. In fact, the inability of these older capsule endoscopes to visualize interior landmarks such as the Ampulla of Vater is well documented.1 Studies have shown that faster frame rates and a wider field of view do not overcome this limitation, which could account for missed lesions elsewhere in the small bowel.2

The value of end-facing cameras is further limited by tumbling, incomplete illumination and the inability to visualize behind mucosal folds. CapsoCam Plus overcomes these barriers by using four lateral, on-board cameras that capture high resolution 360º images of the small bowel, providing a detailed examination of the mucosal surface.

Disadvantages of an end-facing camera

The CapsoAccess capsule data access system allows you to seamlessly extract in vivo images and other data from the CapsoCam Plus capsule after the procedure. To transfer data from the capsule to your computer, simply place the capsule into the CapsoAccess system, close the lid, and click download.

CapsoRetrieve®

Clean, Simple & Effective Capsule Collection

CapsoRetrieve is a sanitary, disposable kit provided to patients for the collection, storage and transportation of the CapsoCam Plus capsule. It provides all the tools necessary for the patient to safely and easily recover the capsule – in just a few simple steps – and return it to the clinic or mail it to the download center.

CapsoCloud®

Cloud-Based Clinical Data Management System

CapsoCloud is the only exam management system that allows you to extract data from the CapsoCam Plus capsule without the need to process post-ingestion. HIPAA-compliant and secure, CapsoCloud gives you easy access to your patient’s exam data at your convenience.

Break free from restrictive receiver equipment

CapsoCam Plus uses a large-capacity onboard storage system that completely eliminates the need for external receiver equipment. This wire-free onboard storage design makes capsule administration faster and easier, while eliminating the risks associated with radio frequency (RF) signals.

Benefits of the CapsoCam Plus wire-free design include:

  • Zero capital investment or maintenance costs
  • Not contraindicated for patients with implantable devices such as pacemakers, defibrillators, and insulin pumps
  • Increased operational efficiency
  • Reduced physician/nurse procedure room time
  • More flexible scheduling
  • More convenient for patients

At-home administration option

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed much about the way healthcare is delivered. From new CMS codes for Telehealth visits to new advances in Telehealth platforms—and now an At-Home Administration option for capsule endoscopy with the CapsoCam Plus System for eligible patients.

In the new COVID-19 environment …what matters?

  • Taking care of patients safely without delays
  • Utilizing new technologies for better efficiency
  • Making things easier for patients and staff
  • Creating a better patient experience
  • Effective procedure outcomes

All of the above attributes are part of the unique design you get with the CapsoCam Plus Capsule Endoscopy System.
