What Is Endoscopy?

Endoscopy is a procedure that uses an endoscope or “scope.” Endoscopes are used for viewing the inside of the body, and they may also be used in some types of surgeries. Endoscopies are typically lighted and some are equipped with tiny video cameras that feed images to a computer screen. Endoscopy is used to provide images of parts of the body that could not otherwise be seen. It is heavily used in the screening for cancer, as well as in diagnosis and treatment.
