Wireless capsule endoscopy is a best option for exploring inaccessible areas of small intestine for inspection of gastrointestinal tract. This technique brings less pain compare to conventional endoscopy technique. The wireless endoscopy system comprises of three main modules: an ingestible capsule that is swallowed by the patient, an external control unit and display device for image display. In this paper, the authors proposed pentagonal shape microstrip patch antenna for wireless capsule endoscopy system. Inhibiting characteristics of a single microstrip patch like low gain, light weight, thin thickness and smaller bandwidth, make it more popular.
