Abstract
Aim We aimed to determine colorectal length with the 3D-Transit system by describing a ‘centerline’ of capsule movement and compare it to known anatomy, as determined by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Further, we aimed to test the day-to-day variation of colorectal length assessed with the system. Method The 3D-Transit system consists of electromagnetic capsules that can be tracked as they traverse the gastrointestinal tract. 25 healthy subjects were examined with both 3D-Transit and MRI. Another 21 healthy subjects were examined with 3D-Transit on two consecutive days. Results Computation of colorectal length from capsule passage was possible in 60 of the 67...
