Abstract

Since the advent of capsule endoscopy (CE) more than one decade has passed. During this time, extensive efforts have been made to proof the relevance of CE for diagnosis of various disease entities within the esophagus, small bowel, and colon. To date, the most common indications for CE are obscure gastrointestinal bleeding, Crohn’s disease, polyposis syndromes and evaluation of patients with complicated celiac disease. In this review we will focus on the current clinical applications of CE for imaging of the esophagus, small bowel and colon and will additionally give an outlook on future concepts and developments of CE.
