Track 1: Gastrointestinal Endoscopy
Gastrointestinal endoscopy is a procedure that allows you to look at the inside lining of esophagus, stomach, and the first part of small intestine. A thin, flexible viewing tool called an endoscope is used. The tip of the endoscope is inserted through the mouth and then gently moved down the throat into esophagus, stomach, and duodenum (upper gastrointestinal tract). This procedure is sometimes called esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD). Using the scope, one can look for ulcers, inflammation, tumors, infection, or bleeding. We can collect tissue samples (biopsy), remove polyps, and treat bleeding through the endoscope.
Track 2: Colonoscopy
Colonoscopy is a test that permits looking at the inner lining of large intestine (rectum and colon). A colonoscopy discovers ulcers, colon polyps, tumors, and zones of inflammation or bleeding. During a colonoscopy, tissue tests can be gathered (biopsy) and anomalous developments can be taken out. Colonoscopy can likewise be utilized as a screening test to check for disease or precancerous developments in the colon or rectum (polyps). The colonoscope is a thin, adaptable tube that extents from 125 cm to 183 cm long. A little camcorder is connected to the colonoscope so we can take pictures or video of the large intestine (colon). The colonoscope can be utilized to take a look at the entire colon and the lower part of the small intestine. A test called sigmoidoscopy demonstrates just the rectum and the lower part of the colon.
Track 3: Endoscopy and Sedation
Sedation and analgesia are considered by numerous gastroenterologists to be a basic part of the endoscopic examination. Sedation is planned basically to decrease a patient's nervousness and uneasiness, therefore enhancing their tolerability and fulfilment for the method. Endoscopic sedation additionally minimizes a patient's danger of physical damage amid an examination and furnishes the endoscopist with a perfect situation for a careful examination.
Track 4: Pancreatic Endoscopy
The Pancreatic Endoscopy has a significant time in diagnosing and treating the full range of diseases of the pancreas and bile channels. An Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS) test can demonstrate the pancreas in much more prominent detail than some other non-surgical diagnostic test. It can likewise demonstrate early phases of fibrosis, developing gallstones and changes in the pancreatic or biliary duct system. Besides, can distinguish pancreatic tumors and metastatic cancer in the liver and encompassing regions.
Track 5: Cholangioscopy
Cholangioscopy is a non-invasive endoscopic strategy utilized for both direct visual diagnostic evaluation and simultaneous therapeutic intervention of the bile ducts. Peroral Cholangioscopy beats a portion of the restrictions of endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP). It has been appeared to be a powerful demonstrative and helpful instrument. Studies have assessed clinical efficacy of peroral cholangioscopy in describing benign versus malignant natures of biliary strictures, diagnosing intraductal tumors, better characterizing obscure biliary pathologies, and treating biliary stones.
Track 6: Endoscopy in Obesity

Depending on the area of visualization, specific endoscopic technique will be implemented for the diagnosis. Experts will prescribe for a specific endoscopic diagnosis for better results.
A Biliary Endoscopy analyse issues in the liver, gallbladder, bile ducts and pancreas. The liver is a substantial organ that produces fluid called bile that assists with digestion. The gallbladder is a little, pear-shaped organ that stores bile until it is required for digestion. The bile ducts are tubes that convey bile from the liver to the gallbladder and small intestine. These ducts are otherwise called the biliary tree. Otherwise called Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), a Biliary Endoscopy is essentially utilized by doctors of the Digestive Disease Center to analyse and treat the states of the bile ducts, including gallstones, inflammatory strictures (scars), leaks (from trauma and surgery) and cancer. It joins the utilization of x-rays and an endoscope. Through the endoscope, the doctor can see within the stomach and duodenum and can infuse colors into the channels in the biliary tree and pancreas, so they can be seen on x-rays.
Track 14: Laparoscopy
Laparoscopy is a surgery that uses a thin, lit tube put through a cut in the belly to take a gander at the abdominal organs or the female pelvic organs . Laparoscopy is utilized to discover issues, cysts, adhesions, fibroids and infection. Tissue samples can be taken for biopsy through the tube (laparoscope).

Importance & Scope:
An endoscopy is a nonsurgical procedure used to examine vessels of the body and internal organs. It helps surgeons to detect and view problems within the body without making large incisions. The endoscope can insert through a small cut or an opening in the body such as the mouth. An endoscope is a flexible tube with an attached camera that allows the doctor to see and detect the problematic organs.
Most types of endoscopy require the patient to fast for up to 12 hours before the procedure and given laxatives or enemas to use the night before the procedure to clear system.
Prior to the endoscopy, your doctor will do a physical examination and go over your complete medical history, including any prior surgeries. Be sure to tell your doctor about any medications you’re taking, including over-the-counter drugs and nutritional supplements, and also alert your doctor about any allergies you might have. You may need to stop taking certain medications if they might affect bleeding. Endoscopy has been categorized into many types including as follows: Arthroscopy, Colonoscopy, Cystoscopy, Enteroscopy, Hysteroscopy, Laparoscopy, Laryngoscopy, Mediastinoscopy, Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy and Ureteroscopy.
Endoscopy has a much lower risk of bleeding and infection than open surgery.
