Capsule Based Gastric Rhythm Analyzer: A Tool for Diagnosing Gastric Diseases
Received Date: Dec 13, 2017 / Accepted Date: Dec 21, 2017 / Published Date: Dec 27, 2017
The proposal of this revolutionary project is a mission which has never been thought by any human kind and which is now on the verge of production by us. Electrogastrography and capsule endoscopy are contributing in the diagnosis of Gastric diseases. On their individual functioning, as a diagnostic tool, they are not capable of producing appropriate results such as the position of tumor in the GI tract. The recording of electrical rhythmic activity can mimic the disability of gastric cells which can’t be diagnosed by endoscopic procedures. Integrating the gastric rhythmic information and capsule endoscopy can lead to an ultimate diagnosis of gastric diseases. The structural information which is captured by a capsule consisting of a camera, LEDs and transmitter provides a visual diagnosis of the gastric disorders/infection. The functional information is obtained by recording the electrical rhythmic activity of the gastric cell via surface electrodes. By mapping the electrical rhythmic signal with the image acquired from the capsule provides the accurate localization of the abnormality.
