Endoscopy is a nonsurgical procedure used to examine a person’s digestive tract. Using an endoscope, a flexible tube with a light and camera attached to it, a doctor can view pictures of a patient’s digestive tract on a color TV monitor. Endoscopes are minimally invasive and can be inserted into the openings of the body such as the mouth or anus.
