Wireless Capsule Endoscopy (WCE) is a minimally invasive diagnosis tool for lesion detection in the gastrointestinal tract, reaching places where conventional endoscopy is unable to. However, the significant amount of acquired data leads to difficulties in the diagnosis by the physicians; which can be eased with computer assistance. This paper addresses a method for the automatic detection of tumors in WCE by using a two-step based procedure: Region of Interest selection and classification.

The European Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ESGE) together with the United European Gastroenterology (UEG) recently developed a short list of performance measures for small-bowel endoscopy (i....
Over the last decade, impressive technological advances have occurred in ultrasonography and small-bowel endoscopy. Nowadays, endoscopic ultrasonography is an essential diagnostic tool and a therapeut...
Video capsule endoscopy provides noninvasive visualization of the small bowel, but yield is often limited by debris. At our institution, preparation with polyethylene glycol (PEG) and simethicone is u...
The review discusses the roles of small bowel capsule endoscopy and deep enteroscopy in patients with Crohn's disease. It highlights recent advances in the field and identifies areas where evidence is...
A small bowel source is suspected when evaluation of overt gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding with upper and lower endoscopy is negative. Video capsule endoscopy (VCE) is the recommended next diagnostic t...
Wireless video capsule endoscopy (VCE) is a non-invasive technology that looks into small intestine and gives images of its lumen as the wireless capsule passes through it. It is used wide...
Small bowel wireless capsule endoscopy is the investigation modality of choice for suspected diseases of the small bowel. The procedure is safe and noninvasive, the main risk being capsule...
To compare the small bowel cleanliness for wireless capsule endoscopy using two different Polyethylene Glycol administration schedules (before the wireless capsule endoscopy ingestion ver...
Wireless Capsule Endoscopy has been the most reliable diagnostic standard for small bowel Crohn's disease. Endoscopic healing is an important endpoint to measure response to treatment.
Capsule endoscopy studies are used for the diagnosis of small bowel mucosal lesions. Since capsule endoscopy depends on the small intestinal peristaltism, the food intake - especially the ...
Non-invasive, endoscopic imaging by use of VIDEO CAPSULE ENDOSCOPES to perform examination of the gastrointestinal tract, especially the small bowel.
A potent, long-acting synthetic SOMATOSTATIN octapeptide analog that inhibits secretion of GROWTH HORMONE and is used to treat hormone-secreting tumors; DIABETES MELLITUS; HYPOTENSION, ORTHOSTATIC; HYPERINSULINISM; hypergastrinemia; and small bowel fistula.
Procedures of applying ENDOSCOPES for disease diagnosis and treatment. Endoscopy involves passing an optical instrument along either natural body pathways such as the digestive tract, or through keyhole incisions to examine the interior parts of the body. With advances in imaging, endoscope, and miniaturization of endosurgical equipment, surgery can be performed during endoscopy.
