This product stores the data so the physician can later analyze them and identify any hemorrhages or cysts. However, the camera is not very suitable for examinations of the esophagus and the abdomen. The reason is that camera just takes around three or four secs to make its way through the esophagus – producing two to four pictures per second – and once it reaches the tummy, its roughly five-gram fat causes it to drop rapidly to the lower wall of the stomach. In other terms, it is too fast to deliver usable pictures. For examinations of the esophagus and the tummy, therefore, patients have to swallow a fairly thick endoscope still. In collaboration with engineers from the maker Provided Imaging, the Israelite Medical center in Hamburg and the Royal Imperial College in London, experts from the Fraunhofer Institute for Biomedical Engineering in Sankt Ingbert have developed the first-ever control system for the camera tablet.Certified from medwireNews with permission from Springer Healthcare Ltd.
