Capsule Endoscopy (CE) has been used in last 10 years in medical diagnosis of intestine disease such as obscure gastrointestinal bleeding(OGIB). An estimated 19 million Americans suffer from these kinds of small intestine disease. The major limitation of this method is that the incomplete examination found in one research is about 20% of 2300 examinations. Also it results in a small risk of obstructive symptoms. When retention happens, high-cost, quick surgical intervention is required.
