Abstract

Over the last 8 years, capsule endoscopy (CE) has revolutionized the visualization of the small bowel. In 2004 this journal published "Capsule endoscopy in IBD: past, present and future" Kornbluth et al [2004] Inflamm Bowel Dis 10:278-285). In this article we review advances since that time and discuss whether CE has achieved its potential and what remaining goals it can and should hope to achieve. In the 2004 article we listed a series of clinical questions to be answered with regard to the use of capsule endoscopy We review those questions that have been addressed in the intervening 5 years, and also update those topics for which information was available at the time of the initial article.
