METHODOLOGY Patients who received chemoradiotherapy to treat pancreatic cancer were enrolled. To increase the diagnostic yield of(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Studies have investigated the use of different types of radiofrequency capsules for comparison or sequential capsule endoscopy, but none have compared the MiroCam device - which utilizes a novel data transmission technology - with other capsules. This study compared the feasibility of sequential capsule endoscopy using the MiroCam and(More)
