Endoscopy (en-DOSS-kuh-pee)


Endoscopy is a procedure that uses a small, flexible tube with a light and a camera on the end to look into the esophagus, stomach, duodenum,colon, or rectum. It can also be used to take tissue from the body for testing or to take color photographs of the inside of the body.

 

Colonoscopy (KOH-lon-OSS-kuh-pee)


Colonoscopy is a procedure used in the screening and prevention of colorectal cancer. It is the test that most physicians, including gastroenterologists, recommend as the single best screening exam for colorectal cancer. It is the only method that combines both screening and prevention, because the doctor can remove pre-cancerous polyps during the procedure.
