Hosted By: Volunteers for Israel (VFI)
You may have heard of this brilliant non-invasive invention in the news! PillCam is a 3cm long capsule developed in Israel that is swallowed and travels through the intestines taking pictures that are transmitted to a recorder. It allows physicians to observe the cause of malfunction leading to remedial procedures. The presentation will describe the background of the invention and the company built around it.
