Given Imaging says that further evidence is now available to show that its ingestible oesophageal capsule endoscopy (ECE), PillCam, is as effective as conventional endoscopy in detecting abnormalities associated with gastro-esophagous reflex disease (GERD). The data were presented at this month's American College of Gastroenterology meeting in Orlando and follow last month's FDA 510(k) clearance of the device for use in oesophageal imaging. A variant of the technology, the PillCam SB, is already available worldwide for imaging the small intestine.
