Abstract

Capsule endoscopy (CE), a recently introduced technology, offers important benefits for evaluation of small bowel pathology as compared to traditional radiologic and endoscopic studies. The most striking complication of this modality is capsule retention, which may obligate invasive retrieval. The radiologist should be aware of the natural course, presentation, diagnostic evaluation, and treatment options for this retained foreign body.
