Endoscopies are procedures in which a doctor uses a flexible optical equipment to obtain images of internal organs that cannot be seen with the naked eye. In medicine there are several types of endoscopy, being Upper Digestive Endoscopy and Videocolonoscopy two of the most commonly performed exams.
Upper Gastrointestinal Endoscopy is also known as EGD, an acronym for esophagogastroduodenoscopy. However, many patients know it simply as endoscopy.
It is a procedure performed to visualize the esophagus, stomach and the initial portions of the duodenum, which is the beginning of the small bowel.
