Abstract

This paper describes about capsule technology in medical field. Capsule endoscope is a device which allows the physician to visualize GI tract. Diagnosis and therapy plays an important role in medical field. This device consists of camera and sensors for real-time visualization of GI tract. Sensors such as thermistor and flow sensor used to sense temperature and blood flow rate in GI tract. By using projectile motion and switching circuits along with motors, targeted drug delivery is achieved. Gastrointestinal wireless capsule endoscope has been designed and demonstrated with the help of electronics. In near future, this technology can extend to tissue sampling and this can implemented using nanotechnology.
