endoscopy

Direct visual examination of any part of the interior of the body by means of an optical viewing instrument (ENDOSCOPE) introduced through a natural orifice or through a small surgical incision. Endoscopy is much used by gastroenterologists for stomach and colon examination, by gynaecologists for LAPAROSCOPY especially for sterilization of women by tying off the FALLOPIAN TUBES (tubal ligation) and by obstetricians for examining the fetus in the womb (fetoscopy). See also ENDOSCOPE.

Endoscopy

A type of medical examination in which an instrument called an endoscope is passed into an area of the body (the bladder or intestine, for example). The endoscope usually has a fiberoptic camera, which allows a greatly magnified image to be projected onto a video screen, to be viewed by the operator. Many endoscopes also allow the operator to retrieve a small sample (biopsy) of the area being examined, in order to more closely view the tissue under a microscope.

Patient discussion about Endoscopy

Q. Cn barret esophagous be cured? I was diagnosed with barretts esophagus several years ago, and so far keeps on the routine follow up. I met some other guy with same condition and he told after his doctor prescribed him with some anti-reflux meds, in the last endoscopy they found normal esophagus, and that he thinks he's now cured. Is that possible?

A. Anti-reflux treatment may lower the risk of cancer a little, but it won't cure it, so there's still a need for refular follow-up.
