Automated Bleeding Detection in Wireless Capsule Endoscopy Videos
Endoscopy is a procedure in which organs inside the body are digitally visualized using an instrument known as an “Endoscope.” The process usually involves inserting a long tube with a tiny camera on its rear end down the throat. Due to advancements in the technology of medical domains, newer devices are being introduced day by day. Wireless Capsule Endoscopy is a perfect example of such modern advances.
Wireless Capsule Endoscopy may also be known as: –
- Capsule Enteroscopy
- Capsule Endoscopy
It is a process that allows painless endoscopic imaging of the small intestine. In this procedure a capsule, consisting of a tiny camera, is used to take pictures of the digestive tract. The camera in the capsule has the capacity to take thousands of color photos as it travels down the digestive tract. Later the saved photos are converted into a video using special software. Then the doctor carefully views the video to detect the abnormalities in the gastrointestinal tract.
Some of the features of this camera are that it has a better image resolution, a long battery life and a higher number of frames from the viewed area. These features ensure that capsule endoscopy is a safe and acceptable method to explore the organs inside the body.
The benefits of wireless capsule endoscopy are as follows: –
- Automatic detection of internal bleeding.
- Less likely to cause discomfort.
- Has the ability to visualize proximal and distal parts of the intestine.
- No sedation is required.
