Digestive Diseases and Endoscopy

Endoscopy was traditionally used to observe only digestive tract and diagnose associated diseases. Endoscopes to investigate digestive diseases are passed through the mouth, or an incision, or through the rectum.  In an upper endoscopy, the endoscope is passed through the mouth into esophagus and stomach and upper part of small intestine. But for the endoscope to be passed to the large intestine, they need to be passed through the rectum, called colonoscopy or sigmoidoscopy. Endoscopic Ultrasound is another crucial imaging technique that combines both, endoscopy and ultrasound to obtain images for further investigation of complicated diseases. Endoscopy is prescribed to evaluate unexplained stomach pains, Ulcers, gastritis, ulcerative colitis, bleeding, polyps, and gallstones, among other oesophageal, gastric, hepatobiliary, hepatopancreatic, and intestinal diseases.
