Zhen Li et al. Screening for upper gastrointestinal cancers with magnetically controlled capsule gastroscopy: a feasibility study

Magnetically controlled capsule gastroscopy (MCCG) was evaluated for upper gastrointestinal cancer screening. It was found that MCCG was well tolerated by patients and no major adverse events (including capsule retention) were reported. MCCG has the potential to improve widespread population-based screening.
