Colon Capsule Endoscopy represents a new diagnostic technology for colonic exploration. Despite the great enthusiasm around this new technique, only few studies are available in the literature, and reported results are still controversial and non-homogeneous. Current preparation protocols have led to discordant results. In January 2010, the first Italian Meeting on Colon Capsule Endoscopy was held. Aim of this Meeting was to critically evaluate the available results obtained by Colon Capsule Endoscopy in clinical studies, in order to identify the proper test indications, to propose a shared preparation protocol and Colon Capsule Endoscopy procedure. Studies published in literature were extensively reviewed and analysed during the Meeting. The available evidence served to propose recommendations for preparation protocols, proper test indications and Colon Capsule Endoscopy procedure. Possible perspectives were also critically analysed and are reported in this paper.
