Gastrointestinal endoscopy, also known as GI Endo, Upper or Lower scopes, allows a provider to see the inside lining of a patient's digestive tract using an endoscope-a flexible fiber-optic tube with a tiny TV camera at the end. The camera is connected to either an eyepiece for direct viewing or a video screen that displays the images on a color TV. The endoscope not only allows diagnosis of gastrointestinal (GI) disease but treatment as well.
