Endoscopy, which examines internal organs through a thin, optical instrument, can be used for analyzing the colon, esophagus, lungs, stomach, portions of the small intestine, gallbladder and pancreas. Modern endoscopic techniques serve as both a diagnostic tool and an effective alternative to conventional surgery in treating many health problems.
