A vitamin pill sized camera that could
travel through your body taking
pictures,helps in diagnosing a
It takes snaps twice for a
The capsule transmits the images to the data recorder.
OUTER VIEW OF A PILL CAMERA
The latest pill camera
is sized at 26*11mm and is
Capable of transmitting
50,000 color images
during its traversal through
the digestive system of the patient.
INTERNAL PARTS OF PILL CAMERA
CMOS image sensor
It contains a light receiving window.
The shape results in easy orientation
through the digestive system.
It is a part of capsule which accommodates
It is tightly fixed to the holder so that it
doesn’t dislocated at any time.
It is an integral part of capsule.
focuses light on CMOS image sensor
Around the lens CMOS Image Sensor,
four LED’s (Light Emitting Diodes)
are present. These plural lighting
devices are arranged in donut shape.
CMOS image sensor:
It is the most important part of the
It has 140º field of view and detect
objects as small as possible.
Button shaped and two in number
made of Zinc/Silver Oxide has
discharge voltage disposable and
doesn’t cause harm to the body.
The ASIC transmitter, two transmitting
electrodes are connected to the outlines
of the ASIC transmitter.
The antenna is arranged at the end of the
capsule. It is closed in a dome shaped
WORKING OF PILL CAMERA
Capsule is swallowed by the patient like a conventional pill.
The capsule makes its way through the throat
It takes images about 2,600(14 per second) as it is propelled forward by peristalsis.
A wireless recorder worn on a belt receives the images transmitted by the pill.
A computer workstation processes the data and produces a continues still images.
Biggest impact on the medical industry
Nano robots can perform delicate surgeries
They can also change the physical appearance
They can slow or reverse the aging process
It is used to shrink the size of components
Nano technology has the potential to have positive effect on the environment
DRAWBACKS AND OVERCOMES
Patients with gastrointestinal structures are not good candidates for this procedure due to the risk of obstruction.
This is over come using other product called rice grain sized motor which is manufactured with the help of nanotechnology.
The pill will get stucked if there is a partial obstruction in the small intestine.
Impossible to control camera behavior.
These two drawbacks can be overcome using a bi-directional telemetry camera.
