Endoscopic Evaluation is a term which covers the commonly known words for gut investigation procedures such as an Endoscopy, Colonoscopy, Gastroscopy, Panendoscopy. This is an investigation done via the mouth or anus to get visibility of internal organs such as the stomach and colon.
An Endoscope is done using a long, thin, flexible tube that has a camera and tools which allows the doctor to inspect internally and also provides the ability to take biopsies and perform procedures without surgery (where an incision is made to open the body for direct viewing/treatment).
Endoscopy’s can be done for prevention and investigation; to gather information, view the affected area, take biopsies – or they can be performed to remove polyps, cancers, legions or to perform parasite treatments or Faecal Microbiota Transplants.
