Special flexible high-tech instruments permit direct visualization of the bronchial, gastrointestinal tract, and the colon for more accurate diagnosis.
Video Endoscope for Gastroscopy
Gastroscopy is a procedure where a thin, flexible tube called an endoscope is used to look inside the oesophagus, stomach and first part of the small intestine (duodenum). This is also referred to as an upper gastrointestinal endoscopy. At the end of the endoscope is a light and camera. The camera sends images of the inside of your oesophagus, stomach and duodenum to a monitor.
Video Endoscope for Colonoscopy
A colonoscopy procedure is an examination of the lining of the colon (large intestines) using a thin flexible, tube-like telescope called a endoscope. This is carefully passed through the back passage (anus) and into the colon in order to examine the large intestines. The lining is examined by looking directly at pictures it sends to a video screen.
Bronchoscopy is the inspection of the interior of the bronchial tubes using a long, thin, lighted, flexible, fiber-optic tube called a bronchoscope, that is passed down the throat and into the windpipe for diagnostic and therapeutic maneuvers.
