Capsule Endoscopy (CE) has been used in last 10 years in medical diagnosis of intestine disease such as obscure gastrointestinal bleeding(OGIB)[1]. An estimated 19 million Americans[2] suffer from these kinds of small intestine disease. The major limitation of this method is that the incomplete examination found in one research is about 20% of 2300 examinations. Also it results in a small risk of obstructive symptoms. When retention happens, high-cost, quick surgical intervention is required.
