Abstract

Capsule endoscopy (Pillcam Colon) has recently shown acceptable accuracy in detecting colonic lesions when compared with colonoscopy. The aim of this analysis is to provide a model to assess the cost and effectiveness of population-based screening for colorectal cancer (CRC) using capsule endoscopy and to compare the cost-effectiveness with that of a colonoscopy screening program.
