Endoscopy is a minimally invasive, nonsurgical procedure during which a flexible tube with a camera is used to examine interior surfaces of an organ or tissue. Biopsies of tissue and retrieval of foreign objects can be performed using this technique.
Cystoscopy (bladder and urethra), rhinoscopy (nasal cavity, pharynx, larynx and guttural pouches) and tracheoscopy (trachea) are performed using a 9.5mm, 150cm videoscope. Bronchoscopy (lungs), gastroscopy (stomach) and duodenoscopy (small intestine) are completed with a specialized 12.9mm, 330cm gastroscope. Bronchoalveolar lavages (lung washes) are routinely performed to investigate pulmonary disorders. All images and videos are recorded and can reviewed immediately using a remote notebook.
