What is endoscopy?
An endoscopy is an examination of the upper digestive tract (the stomach and duodenum) using an endoscope – a long soft flexible tube, containing a camera and a light.
An endoscopy is usually ordered to investigate the cause of abdominal pain, vomiting, bleeding or anaemia, and to make or confirm a diagnosis.
