Endoscopy 

 

What is endoscopy?

Endoscopy is a minimally invasive diagnostic tool. Endoscopy allows us to see inside of the body without making any surgical incisions. An endoscope (either flexible or rigid depending on the procedure) has a camera on the end which is inserted into the area of interest. Images are then projected to a TV monitor. There is a channel in the scope which allows us to insert instruments for a variety of procedures including biopsy sampling and foreign body retrieval.

We are able to utilize our scope in the nose, esophagus, trachea, stomach, small intestine, colon & bladder.

 

What types of endoscopy can be done?

Esophagoscopy evaluates the esophagus to assess for evidence of inflammation, tumours or foreign body retrieval.

 

Gastrointestinal tract endoscopy is used for foreign body retrieval and to take biopsies of the stomach/intestines/colon to diagnose diseases such as inflammatory bowel disease & lymphoma.

 

Rhinoscopy is used to look inside the nasal cavity for foreign bodies, tumors, inflammatory disease or infections.

 

Tracheoscopy/Bronchoscopy evaluates the airways for evidence of respiratory disease.

 

Cystoscopy is used to visualize inside the bladder for tumours, bladder stones or abnormal anatomy. This procedure can be performed on female dogs.
