 Two types of capsule endoscopy〔PillCamTM SB(Given(R) Imaging), Endo Capsule(Olympus)〕are permitted for obscure GI(gastrointestinal)bleeding after upper and lower GI examination in Japan. In this paper, we described the system, mechanisms and procedure of these capsule endoscopies. In addition, we introduced CEST(capsule endoscopy structured terminology)and our reading method for diagnosis of mid GI bleeding using PillCamTM SB and RAPID(R) 5 Access.
