Researchers have developed a tablet-size robot capsule that can be swallowed and guided across the body using a magnet, hoping to end the painful endoscopy.

Endoscopes – thin, long, flexible tubes with light and a camera – are used to transfer images from inside the body to the external display. And helps to remove adenoma tumors and the discovery of diseases and cancers, which affect the upper part of the digestive system.

This procedure is often uncomfortable, as the tool is inserted down the throat or through the anus, and connected to an external cable.

But the new innovation named Sonopill, is wirelessly routed across the colon using an external magnet and artificial intelligence.

A successful scientific experiment could revolutionize the world of eyewitness!

To achieve this, the patient first swallows a capsule carrying live images from inside the stomach and digestive system. The capsule comes in the size of a large medicine pill, where it exits the body naturally with the stool.

The team of scientists from England, Scotland, the United States and Canada succeeded in testing the instrument on live animals. But they said more discipline was needed to improve the system.

"Digestive diseases are numerous and severe, and are associated with approximately 8 million deaths a year worldwide due to cancers and inflammatory bowel disease," said the study authors.

"We have achieved and demonstrated the possibility of magnetic control in a closed loop, using accurate ultrasound feedback, which is critical for obtaining strong imaging in an unknown and unrestricted environment," they said.

The study was published in the journal Science Robotics.
