Endoscopy is a minimally invasive diagnostic tool that is becoming more widely used in veterinary medicine. Endoscopy allows us to see inside of the body without making any surgical incisions. A long, flexible tube with a camera at one end is inserted into the area of interest. Images are then projected to a monitor. A biopsy channel in the scope allows us to insert instruments for a variety of proceduresincluding cytology, culture, biopsy, and foreign body retrieval.
