WHAT IS AN ENDOSCOPE?

An endoscope is a device, with an attached light, that’s used to look inside a body cavity or organ. The scope is inserted through a natural opening or through a small incision in the skin of the patient. Because the endoscopes are so precise and offer the ability to look inside a patient’s body without major intervention, most endoscopies are performed on an outpatient basis. Some examples of endoscopies performed through a natural opening are:

  • The mouth during a bronchoscopy
  • The rectum for a sigmoidoscopy
  • The vagina for a cystoscopy

The technological advances in the field of endoscopies have not only helped medicine and veterinary professionals do a better, more meticulous work, they’ve also helped patients, offering them the choice of undergoing minimal invasive procedures whenever it is appropriate for their case.

FIBER OPTIC AND SCOPES

There are two kinds of endoscopes: rigid and flexible. In general, a flexible endoscope is referred to as a fiberscope. The main difference between these two types of endoscopes is the way they capture the images. The fiberoptic ones have a bunch of precisely aligned flexible optical fibers to light the area and/or capture the image, while in the rigid endoscopes the image is conveyed by a relay of lenses.

Some fiberoptic endoscopes include the upper gastrointestinal endoscope (for the esophagus, stomach, and duodenum), the colonoscope (for the colon), and the bronchoscope (for the bronchial tubes). With fiber optics, much more maneuverable instruments can be made, allowing surgeons to reach formerly inaccessible places and explore different areas of the body, while causing much less discomfort for the patient. Attachments added to the endoscopes can take tissue samples, excise polyps and small tumors, and remove foreign objects.
