The FDA has approved M2A Capsule (Given Imaging Ltd, Yoqneam, Israel) for use with other endoscopic and radiological evaluations of the small bowel. The device is 26 mm long and 11 mm wide, is made of biocompatible plastic, and contains a miniature color video camera with a flash, batteries, transmitter, and antenna. The capsule is ingested and propelled through the gastrointestinal tract by natural peristalsis. It transmits the acquired images into a data recorder until the device is excreted.
