Endoscopy is a minimally invasive diagnostic medical procedure in which a tube like instrument, known as endoscope, is used to look inside the body and examine organs. There are many different types of endoscopes available in the market; some are flexible and rigid while few are in a form of capsule. Moreover, there exist specialized endoscopes depending on the area of the body to be examined, such as bronchoscope for airways and lungs, arthroscope for joints, laparoscope for abdomen, and colonoscope for large intestine, among others. Apart from their use in various types of surgeries, endoscopy equipments are also being used for non-surgical applications in the form of internal diagnostic tool and even for anatomical observations.
