The Endoscope – the Gastroenterologist’s Most Valuable Tool
The endoscope is a thin, flexible instrument used to perform diagnostic procedures in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. Gastroenterologists use various forms of these instruments, and they may be introduced orally or rectally. A colonoscope, for example, is used for a colonoscopy. Equipped with a camera and light at the tip, endoscopes allow close examination of either the upper or lower GI tract in real time. Small instruments can also be deployed through the endoscope, to take a tissue sample, or biopsy, for diagnosis. Here at ASCLI, we are just as concerned with ensuring your comfort and privacy during these procedures as we are with your health, and we provide our services in a warm, safe and caring environment.
