The article reports on the development of wireless capsule endoscopy (WCE) designed for the investigation of the small bowel. It is stated that the rationale for developing WCE of the oesophagus should give respect to the indications of oesogastroduodenoscopy (OGD) and clinical relevance of information provided by conventional approach. Moreover, it is noted that the way endoscopy is performed has still unmet needs associated with the use of conventional instruments like video-endoscopes.
