US Authorities Approve Swallowable PillCam After Nine Years


During the last nine years or so, PillCam has been approved and used in 80 other countries, including Australia. Now, the FDA has granted approval for use in the US too. It should allow up to 750,000 people who can’t undergo a standard colonoscopy the chance to be diagnosed for cancer or polyps early. [Boston Globe via Motherboard via Engadget]
