Cover Story (view full-size image): Capsule endoscopy is a less invasive way than conventional endoscopy to image the interior of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract for potential clinical diagnosis of conditions such as inflammation and cancer. The SonoCAIT device (capsule for autonomous imaging and therapy) has been developed to explore whether a similar approach can be applied for treatment. Based on the principle of ultrasound-mediated targeted drug delivery, it includes a miniature camera, a drug-delivery channel and an ultrasound transducer able to manipulate microbubbles and drugs. Together, these components support one stage in a proposed patient pathway which also includes capsule-endoscopy based diagnosis, marking of sites of disease, and post-treatment follow-up.
