Now Offering CapsoCam Plus®, the Only Capsule Endoscopy System with a 360° Panoramic View

Gastrointestinal Specialists, Inc. is now offering CapsoCam Plus®, the only small bowel capsule endoscopy system in the world with a 360° panoramic view of the small bowel. Unlike other products, CapsoCam Plus requires no wires, belts or sedation. Patients simply swallow a capsule that takes thousands of images as it travels effortlessly through the digestive system. All of the diagnostic data is stored on-board the capsule.

As a result, our patients receive a convenient exam while one of our providers achieves a comprehensive view as the capsule passes through the digestive tract. When the exam is complete, patients can easily collect the capsule using a specially designed CapsoRetrieve® capsule retrieval kit and then return via FedEx in a pre-paid envelope to CapsoVision. It’s that simple.


  • CapsoCam Plus is cleared by the United States Food and Drug Administration and serves as a tool in the detection of abnormalities of the small bowel by offering a full panoramic, direct lateral view of the small bowel mucosa
  • High resolution visualization provides the most comprehensive imaging available today
  • Detailed imaging by CapsoCam Plus® may allow for greater diagnostic yield and its use of a large-capacity, on-board storage system eliminates the need for external receiver equipment
  • Cloud-based, HIPAA-compliant capsule endoscopy software provides a patient’s provider with easy access to their secure exam data, improving convenience and satisfaction

Our patients now have access to CapsoCam Plus by CapsoVision designed for improved comfort, convenience, and freedom. We strive to provide our patients with the best care possible. If we can help you, please contact us.
