Veterinary Highlights: Endoscopic Camera Capsule

First time I saw anything like that was one of the episodes of House MD.

Very neat new way of taking a look inside the GI tract!

Much easier than endoscopy and no anesthesia needed. The tiny capsule equipped with 4 cameras can handle about 18 hours of 360 degree view video of the digestive tract.

It's been only available for animals for about 6 months.

Easier on the dogs, no anesthesia, lower cost, no hospital stay ... I'll be looking when our vet might get these.
