Given Imaging is the maker of the unique swallowable Pill Camera for diagnosis of disease of the gastrointestinal tract.
The M2A capsule consists of a microchip camera and light-emitting diodes that act as a flash, as well as Zarlink's RF transmitter chip, antenna and two silver- oxide batteries. It is swallowed by the patient and then passes through the digestive tract.
The images taken are transmitted by the RF chip to a data recorder in a belt worn by the patient.
Great use of miniture technology. It sounds futuristic, but its used already today.
