Gastroscopy

 

examination of the gastric cavity by means of a special instrument, the gastroscope, which is inserted into the stomach through the mouth and the esophagus; a form of endoscopy. The gastroscope is a flexible tube with an optic system of numerous short-focus lenses and an electric bulb inside it. The gastroscope can easily and safely be inserted into the stomach. It is used when a stomach tumor or an ulcer is suspected and, in gastritis, for a detailed examination of the mucous membrane.
