    Mayo Clinic Says CT Better than PillCam

    Tried Google search for Scott R Paulsen--his name does not show up-must be a young MD.
    Saw Jonathan Leighton-Chair Endoscopy-Arizona.He is upbeat about Capsule Endoscopy results for Crohn.
    Please note that Endocapsule of Olympus uses CCD chip rather CMOS chip used in M2A of Given with far better image quality.
    I think CCD technology and ability to position the Capsule where doctor wants will greatly enhance the Capsule Sales in 5 to 8 years.DDW presentations by several persons is an important achievement.Read the abstract of Allison,Van Dam from Stanford at DDW Los Angeles.
    Note that all these techniques have their place and advantages/disadvantages.What you describe--Paulsen abstract is true--but look at the cost.
    Traditional procedures can take biopsy etc.where as Capsule is a Screeing device.But Cheap way to Screen has its place for many.
