What is Endoscopy?
Endoscopy is the process of looking inside body cavities, using a very tiny camera attached to the end of a long, flexible tube (endoscope). Images from the camera are sent to a monitor screen so that the doctor can direct the movement of the endoscope. It is also possible to pass different instruments through the endoscope to allow small samples or growths to be removed.

Colonoscopy is an endoscopy of the large bowel (colon). Gastroscopy is an endoscopy of the oesophagus, stomach and duodenum.

Endoscopy allows a doctor to make a diagnosis either by seeing directly what is causing the problem or by taking a small tissue sample for examination under a microscope (biopsy).
Endoscopy can also be used as a treatment such as for the removal of polyps or dilatation of the oesophagus (food pipe).
