Capsule endoscope and capsule endoscope system
WO 2004096028 A1
Abstract
A capsule endoscope is constituted of an imaging means (11) with an imaging portion capable of taking an image in a body cavity, an illumination means (12) for illuminating inside the body cavity by illumination light, power source means (13) for feeding power to the imaging means (11) and the illumination means (12), and a capsule housing (14) inside which the imaging means (11), illumination means (12), and the power source means (13) are at least arranged. A head cover portion (20) making up the capsule housing (14) leads illumination light (L) out from the illumination means (12) and has a window portion (20a) for illumination, at which window portion the illumination is less possible to be reflected to the imaging means (11).
