Once the ingestible capsule C-Scan® Cap is swallowed, it travels naturally along the gastrointestinal tract while scanning the inner lining of the colon. C-Scan® Cap actively communicates with the second element of the system, C-Scan® Track, which records and stores the scanning data. When the screening procedure is over, C-Scan® Cap will be excreted naturally, the patient is notified, and the scanning data can be analyzed by using our proprietary software, C-Scan® View.
