The term “endoscopy” refers to several procedures that use an endoscope – a small, flexible tube with a built-in light and camera on its tip. Using the endoscope, the physician can examine a patient’s digestive tract to screen for problems like polyps or tumors, determine the source of gastrointestinal bleeding, or remove foreign bodies. The images from the scope are displayed on a high definition, flat-panel screen so that the team can spot problem areas or take tissue samples for biopsy.
