About the book

Endoscopy is a medical procedure that permits a doctor to inspect and observe the inside of the body without performing major surgery. Endoscopes have been developed for many parts of the body. Each has its own name, depending on the part of the body it is proposed to investigate. To date, endoscopy had a major impact on the development of modern medicine and other medical specialties. The field of endoscopic procedures has developed over the last decade. Using different data provided a better understanding of pathogenic mechanisms, described new entities and used for early detection, diagnostic procedures, and therapeutic procedures. With the advantages of many technical advances and modern endoscopic equipment, endoscopy has developed spectacularly. Consequently, endoscopy has surpassed its function as an examination tool and it became a rapid and efficient therapeutic tool for various organs including the gastrointestinal tract, head and neck, respiratory tract, and others. The efficacy and usefulness of endoscopy have yet to be established.
