Once at the office, you will be required to eat a small meal called the SmartBar. You will then swallow the capsule and are free to leave the office. As the capsule naturally travels through your GI tract it collects pressure, pH and temperature data. A data receiver, worn for several days on a belt clip or lanyard around the neck, captures and stores the test data collected by the capsule. The wireless receiver is removed during bathing and sleeping. The single use, disposable capsule is usually passed within a few days.
The patient returns the data receiver to the office and the test data is downloaded. Your physician will review the test results with you after the data has been analyzed.
